Recently I noticed rather randomly that some of the switches in my network are experiencing a large amount of dropped packets on a trunk interface (a couple thousand per minute approx).
I have email alerts enabled for any link up/down issues, and usually I get email alerts for high broadcasts, and at one point, high discard rates.
Any ideas on why I wasn't receiving any alerts for the large discard rate I was experiencing?
Also of note; for some reason 124 out of 133 devices are in a 'Pending' state for device management status. Could this be a reason for not receiving specific alerts? I'm not sure how I can get those devices back to 'normal' status.
Any information would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.
No. The device type has no bearing on Notification Services. Just make sure that those devices are included in your Notification Group under DFM > Notification Services > Notification Groups.
