Alarm Correlation Example

I am attempting to configure the following:

 

Every 10 minutes check the NAS and if there are more than X alerts from the interface_traffic probe -> send email

 

I believe I can can best accomplish this by creating a script that checks the NAS for my condition (if there are more than X alerts from the interface_traffic probe)  and if it matches that criteria perform either A or B

 

A) Set a trigger to true. I could then create a profile (trigger based) that sends me an email when the trigger is set to true. I am not sure I can configure a trigger in this mannger that would allow the AO profile to detect it

 

B) Have the script send new alarm. Then build a AO profile to send an email when it detects this alarm. 

 

Can someone provide me an example of how this script would look?  I am not sure how to state ->  total amount of active alerts for probe X? 

 

Any thoughts on the best approach A or B? 

 

Thank You in advance for your help.
