Hello all,

I'm continuously receiving following alerts from DFM


ALERT ID = 00000X5

TIME = Wed 21-Jun-2006 04:37:01 EDT

STATUS = Active

SEVERITY = Critical

MANAGED OBJECT = 172.16.225.101

MANAGED OBJECT TYPE = Switches and Hubs

EVENT DESCRIPTION = PORT-172.16.225.101/15.1 [15/1]:HighUtilization; PORT-172.16.225.101/15.1 [15/1]:HighBroadcastRate; 172.16.225.101: STP Topology Change:MinorAlarm;



Wherein in the event details shows

EventID: 00001B5

Property Value

Component PORT-172.16.225.101/15.1 [15/1]

OutputPacketRate 2889.8174 PPS

Type PROPVIRTUAL

CurrentUtilization 6.1234008E10 %

InputPacketRate 2924.9668 PPS

TrafficRate 7.6542511E16 BYPS

UtilizationThreshold 50

DuplexMode FULLDUPLEX

MaxSpeed 1000000000


The threshold limit is set as 50 for Utilization and 30 for Broadcast.


This message is very frustrating since it is been generated for each Cat 6500 and once every one to two hours.


Please suggest any configuration (bug) changes to stop these kind messages.

Thanks,

tmpnpo

DFM requires quite a bit of tuning especially the notification alerts. I found setting my thresholds for 85% util, 45% broadcast only alerts me when there is a problem in the network. Adjust the thresholds on the configuration page and see what works.


Once your threshold levels are setup correctly the alerts will clear. Preventing the 100's of useless emails every day!
