I currently have Prime LMS 4.2, and Prime Infrastructure 2.0 , Does prime 2.0, or even LMS 4.2 have the ability to monitor and alerts for events not related to interfaces? Over the weekend I had a 6509 with a 10gigabit line card fail, and also a 4948 with power supply fail, and even though these events were recorded in syslog, I did not receive any type of alerts despite having alerts created for these devices if they are completely down. Cisco Prime LMS server does have the 4948 power supply issue listed in the Device Fault Summary, but no alert was generated and emailed to me.
Either product can e-mail you in the case of a device becoming unreachable.
In LMS, you wold have the condition "Oprationally down" in the Event set that you are subscribed to (Admin > Network > Notification and Action Settings > Event Sets). You can optionally add other events (such as syslog only events) to your notification group.
As Marvin said " you need to have "operationally down and unresponsive " under event set
along with it just make sure this device is added in the Notification Group [Admin > Network > Notification and Action Settings > Fault Notification Group] that you have configured in LMS to send the alert.
