How can I filter messages that are sent over email?

I am curently recieving a lot of emails regarding VLAN going up/down. LMS consideres this as a critical event.

This is warning message:


ALERT ID = 000012H

TIME = Sre 05-avg-2009 12:58:22 CEST

STATUS = Active

SEVERITY = Critical


MANAGED OBJECT TYPE = Switches and Hubs

EVENT DESCRIPTION = []:Unresponsive; IF- [Vl180] []:OperationallyDown;



Please help he filter this kind of events, because my email account is spammed with this messages (the network we are monitoring is big and has a lot of VLANs).

Thank you in advance!

Best regards.

You can either disable this event for purposes of notification by creating en event set under DFM > Notification Services > Event Sets which only lists the events for which you want to receive notifications. Exclude the OperationallyDown event. Then, under Notification Groups, choose the configured event set.

Alternatively, you can unmanage these VLAN interfaces (assuming they are not the interfaces by which DFM is managing the devices) under DFM > Device Management > Detailed Device View.
