minor-event (Process)


Hierarchy Level


Indicates a non-critical event that, if left unchecked, may cause an interruption in service or degradation in performance but does not significantly affect the device. You can specify the process threshold value for specific processes and their memory limit. When the threshold is crossed, you can configure the action to be performed. For instance, you can specify the process threshold for the rpd process and the memory limit for that process. If the system detects that the memory utilized by the process is greater than the threshold memory limit, based on the value, a minor event is triggered. Usually, for minor events, an SNMP trap is raised.
