Event Options

 

The IP/MPLSView main window has a Fault menu used to display an event browser, event summary reports, and to edit thresholds.

From the event pull-down menu, select the severity you want for each event. Scroll to the bottom of the window and click Apply.

You can use the Threshold Editor to provide notifications when certain thresholds are exceeded. Through the threshold editor, you can configure rules, which if triggered, 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 are displayed in the Event Browser and can also be subscribed to by e-mail or SMS using the Subscription Editor.

Threshold alarms are triggered by data periodically collected by the Traffic Collection Manager, or the Task Manager Device SNMP Collection, Device Ping Collection, or Device SLA Collection tasks.

Click Edit Threshold Alarms. The IP/MPLSView Threshold Editor window is displayed.

Figure 2 shows the IP/MPLSView Threshold Editor window with the CPUStats element type, CPU scope, and CPU high util threshold rule selected.

To change the threshold level of an existing rule, select the value to the right of the Production Rule. Change the value and click the Save icon.

You can create a new scope. Select the element type and click the Create icon. A new scope named Undefined is added to the list. Supply the parameters to create the new scope.

To create a new threshold rule, expand the element type, select the scope, and click the Create icon. A new threshold named Undefined is added to the list and displayed in the right pane. Supply the parameters to create the new rule.

Click the Save icon.

To add a new e-mail to the Event Subscribers list, click email, and then click the Create icon. A new e-mail identified as Undefined is listed. Select the Undefined e-mail, type the recipient e-mail address, select the e-mail format from the Email Format pull-down menu, select true or false from the Durable menu, and click the Save icon. The new e-mail is listed in the Event Subscribers pane.

You can also add a Java Message Service (JMS), instant messenger (IM), or UDP subscriber to interact with third-party applications.

After creating an event subscriber, you assign an event subscriber to an event subscription by dragging and dropping the event subscriber from the bottom left panel to an event subscription in the top left panel.

To enable or disable the sending of SNMP traps for an event, click Enable or Disable Events. The Enable/Disable SNMP trap configuration window is displayed. Figure 6 shows the SNMP trap configuration list.
