I wanted to set something like 'maintenence mode' to certain interfaces of managed devices in DFM. I was looking at the 'Managed state' in Detailed Device view and it seems to hint the correct function.
I wanted to place interfaces to maintenence mode so that any traps or events occurred at that port will be ignored and events/alerts wouldn't be sent.
Is the 'Managed state' the function i'm looking for ? The help file states that 'All active events will be moved to cleared state' BUT 'Alerts will remain in active state'.
What is the difference between events and alerts and how does that affects notification ?
Thanks very much for clarification.
