I have a requirement with a customer to come up with an event notification on their Nexus 7k and 5ks when a port configured for storm-control exceeds the defined threshold. It seems like all that I can do is send a Syslog/SNMP trap and no e-mail for notification. I've included what I came up with but there seems like I should be able to do more. Any advice would be appreciated. I would really like to send a notification out.
event manager applet SC-ALERT event storm-control action 1 syslog msg Interface $interface exceeded high threshold for broadcast traffic
I would also like to change the default action for storm control to error disable the port. Can that be done?
Name : storm_control Description : Traffic on a port exceeds configured thresholds Event Parameters : interface, cause Publisher : Ethernet Port Manager Default Action : None
