Hello


I have CiscoWorks LMS 2.6 running.

I keep getting these high utilization notifications from my 6506 switch where the thresholds seems to be set to only 40%.

Can someone tell me how to configure the LMS or switch to set the utilization threshold to say about 80% ?



The following is what I get via SMTP from CiscoWorks:


EVENT ID                = 0000P4J

ALERT ID                = 00002ZJ

TIME                    = Fri 19-Mar-2010 15:01:20 VET

STATUS                  = Active

SEVERITY                = Critical

MANAGED OBJECT          = 192.168.100.11

MANAGED OBJECT TYPE     = Switches and Hubs

EVENT DESCRIPTION       = HighUtilization::Component=PORT-192.168.100.11/1.2 [Fa1/2] [** Member: EtherChannel Trunk Group to MER1 6506 **];OutputPacketRate=4330.4336  PPS;Type=ETHERNETCSMACD;CurrentUtilization=44.208015  %;InputPacketRate=5729.854  PPS;TrafficRate=5526002.0  BYPS;UtilizationThreshold=40;DuplexMode=FULLDUPLEX;MaxSpeed=100000000;

Thanks in advance.

Go to DFM > Configuration > Polling and Threshold > Managing Thresholds.  Select your device group, and click Edit.  Set the utilization threshold to the desired value, save your changes, then go to Apply Changes back under Polling and Threshold.

Hi Joe


Thanks for your prompt response.


I just need to figure out which one of the device groups I need to select :-)


Thanks again.

According to the event you provided, the group would be "Switches and Hubs".
