    Event Options

    Select Fault > Event Options to access the event settings. Use the following options to configure your event settings:

    • Edit Threshold Alarms

      Threshold alarms (also known as threshold crossing alerts) help you monitor the network against any number of user defined service-level agreements (SLAs) or other production and performance requirements. When these SLAs or other requirements are breached, the event server notifies you by means of the Event Browser or by sending preconfigured notification e-mails. The Web-based Threshold Editor enables you to configure rules to trigger threshold events.

    • Edit Event Subscriptions

      You can create and edit event subscriptions to notify you through e-mail or Short Message Service (SMS) text messages about network events of particular interest. To set up notifications to the events you want to monitor, you must create event subscriptions and event subscribers, and then associate event subscribers with particular subscriptions.

    • Edit Event Severities

      You can change the default the severity level for an event. Possible severity levels include: INFO, NORMAL, UP, WARNING, MINOR, MAJOR, CRITICAL and DOWN.

    • Enable or Disable Events

      You can enable or disable sending of SNMP traps for an event.

    1. Select Fault > Event Options > Edit Threshold Alarms.

      The Threshold Editor is displayed.
