Checking on packet capturing status


I'm currently 'misusing' a M-3050's capability to capture packets (domain/Device List/Sensorname > Packet Capturing > enable) to log DNS usage from a certain network. After reaching some MB filesize the capture file is uploaded to the manager. This part works quite fine.

My problem is that capturing stopped at some point in time and I didn't notice that.

Do you know a possibility to check if the capturing is still running?

I thought there might be a possibility to do that by:

- sending a fault notification via snmp trap, email or syslog

- polling some snmp parameter via a network management system

I'd appreciate any suggestion!

I'm running NSM v7.0.3.10 and M-3050 sensors
