I am getting erroneous BackupActivated events since I enabled the "Backup Interfcae Support Settings" Threshold category in Managing Thresholds.
Background Info: We dual home our remote site routers to separate 3560 switches and run backup interface on the primary router LAN interface, configured to bring up the connection to the secondary switch should the primary switch connection fail. Hence, I was hoping to get notification when any of our routers activated the backup interface.
As it turns out, I am getting what I consider to be false alarms such as the following examples:
1 - 2801 BRI change of state
2 - 1801/11 FastEthernet (LAN) interface change of state
These 2 conditions are being reported as BackupActivated Events.
Any ideas how I can filter these ones out? Furthermore, is my assumption correct that this feature will advise of backup interface state changes?
