    Fault Management: Threshold Crossing Alerts Overview

    The Fault Management: Threshold Crossing Alerts chapter of the Management and Monitoring Guide for IP/MPLSView describes how to use the Threshold Editor to provide notifications when certain thresholds are exceeded. Through the threshold editor, users can configure rules, which if triggered, will create a threshold event. For example, a rule can be generated when a link exceeds a certain percentage utilization or when a node’s CPU utilization exceeds a certain percentage. The threshold events will be displayed in the Event Browser and can also be subscribed to via e-mail/SMS using the Subscription Editor.

    The prerequisites for the Threshold Editor are the same as that for the Event Browser. See Fault Management: Events Overview for more details.

    Additionally, to trigger the threshold alarm, the corresponding collections must be scheduled on a recurring basis. For the collections via the Task Manager, a collection interval can be specified in the Schedule Task pane of the corresponding task.

    For more information on setting up the Event Browser, refer to Fault Management: Events Overview.
