Event Map

 

Select Tools > Options > General, Event Displaypane for display options

  • When linkDown traps come in, the relevant link on the Standard map can be marked with an “F” symbol, and this symbol can be removed when a linkUp trap comes in. To enable this feature, select “Determine Link Operational Status by Link Up/Down traps”.

  • When events of the specified severity level or higher come in, you can choose whether or not to Show a New Icon in Topology Map and/or Display a New Event Alert. A small lightning bolt icon will show up next to events, and is not erased until you view the event, for example, by right-clicking on the node and selecting “View Events.” The New Event Alert is a yellow post-it note that appears in the lower right-hand corner of the IP/MPLSView application above the console.

    As events come in, the Standard Map can show color-coded numbers indicating the number of events at a router.

  • To turn on or off the refreshing and display of events on the Standard Map, go to Tools > Options > JMS Access and check or uncheck the “Connect upon opening the Live Network.” Note that this option will only take effect the next time opening the live network.

  • To toggle the display of the event counter on the map, right-click over the map and select Labels>Hide Event Counts or Labels > Show Event Counts.

    The VPN topology display will also show these color-coded numbers indicating the number of events at a router. The display can be toggled by right-clicking over the VPN topology display and selecting View Options > Event Counts.

    To view the Events legend on the map, select Network > Maps > Map (Events).The left pane of the Event Map reveals that a dotted line indicates a tunnel and a solid line indicates a link. Node and link events are displayed against a square background, while tunnel events are displayed against an arched background.

    The number of events on each node and link are displayed against a background colored according to the severity legend shown on the left. Note that some of the event counters are followed by a ‘+’ symbol. In this case, the counter represents the number of events belonging to the most recent severity category used for the background color and the ‘+’ symbol indicates that there are additional events of other severity not factored into this counter. Event counts are also displayed for collapsed groups and are obtained by combining the values for all the nodes in the group (children, grandchildren, etc.).

  1. In the Event Map, right-click on a node, link, or tunnel and select View Events to display events for that element in the Event Browser. In the Standard Map, this menu will be under Events>View Events.

    Note that there may be less rows displayed in the resulting Event Browser than the number of events displayed on the map might suggest. This is because multiple events of the same type can be aggregated together into one entry. To see how many such events have been aggregated together for an entry, view the Count column of the Event Browser window.

  2. To filter the events by Node, Link, or Tunnel events, select the left pane’s Network Elements > Nodes with Events, Links with Events, or Tunnels with Events. Right-click on the left pane for additional options.

  3. From the map right-click menu, select View All Link Events and View All Tunnel Events to view event deails from the Event Browser. If you right-click over a node on the map, you can also select View All Link Events and View All Tunnel Events to see the events on a node.
