DFM Alert Event Type

Unanswered Question
Jul 3rd, 2008

There seems to be something wrong with DFM. When I look at the alerting page, it shows "Utilization" as the type, but when I look at the alerts they might have nothing to do with utilization. For example, there is an alert for a managed router, but it was for a duplicate address.

Is there a way to resolve this problem?

I have this problem too.

The alerts generally take the type of the first event. If you had a HighUtilization event when the alert was first created, but that alert cleared, the name will remain. You can go back through Fault History to determine if this was the case.

I purged all devices from DFM and resynchronized with CMS. It was the first and only alarm of this managed device.

Then there may be a category matching problem coming from the EMC/Smarts server. You could open a TAC service request and pursue this further.
