Receiving email notification of port state changes

Answered Question

Hello


I have a small SAN comprising 4 x MDS9509's and a Fabric Manager Server.


The FMS is set to email fabric events, but it doesn't email on port state changes i.e. IF_DOWN_LINK_FAILURE and IF_UP. I'm assuming this is because they are not actual fabric changes.


What is the best way for me to be able to receive email notification of these changes?


Thanks

You can use callhome


MDS(config)# ip domain-lookup

MDS(config)# ip name-server


MDS(config)# snmp-server contact


MDS(config)# callhome

MDS(config-callhome)# email-contact <[email protected]>

MDS(config-callhome)# phone-contact

MDS(config-callhome)# streetaddress

MDS(config-callhome)# enable

MDS(config-callhome)# transport email from <[email protected]>

MDS(config-callhome)# transport email smtp-server

MDS(config-callhome)# no destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group All

MDS(config-callhome)# destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group Syslog-group-port

MDS(config-callhome)# destination-profile short-txt-destination email-addr <[email protected]

MDS(config-callhome)# no duplicate-message throttle

Roman

Hello,


What you need to do is to implement RMON so that you can get events related to interfaces flapping.


I assume you have callhome configured at present which allows you to get notified in case of critical system events.


The following link will help you understand and configure RMON:

Can RMON monitor Up/Down events? I thought it can only monitor absolute/delta changes in numeric values of SNMP MIB objects.

We have Call home here and we get notification of Port going Up & Down. I think you need to set the correct Level for MsgLevel (Debug 1) and AlertGroups (Linecard).
