To be honest - no. AWK has no database, no snmp.

Current working idea is following:

	event source -> annotation process ->
	-> classification/correlation process

event source:
	collects events either from snmp traps, snmp measurements
	or some strange 3th party source

annotation process:
	adds information to event based of fact source (database)
	or programmatically

	match cisco_1234 specific event
		match interface down event
			query database for customer info (based on
				add customer information
			query specific router for last 15 minute
				add statistics information

	match on customer importance
		add "red color"

	something similiar to above, but using existing
	events as one fact store.

Currently this is done in pure eElang. In my dreams I wanted elegant
matching (and properties access) functionality and still keeping
power of language.
