Receiving email notification of port state changes

Hello

I have a small SAN comprising 4 x MDS9509's and a Fabric Manager Server.

The FMS is set to email fabric events, but it doesn't email on port state changes i.e. IF_DOWN_LINK_FAILURE and IF_UP. I'm assuming this is because they are not actual fabric changes.

What is the best way for me to be able to receive email notification of these changes?

Thanks

Steven

Re: Receiving email notification of port state changes

You can use callhome

MDS(config)# ip domain-lookup

MDS(config)# ip name-server

MDS(config)# snmp-server contact

MDS(config)# callhome

MDS(config-callhome)# email-contact <callhome@company.com>

MDS(config-callhome)# phone-contact

MDS(config-callhome)# streetaddress

MDS(config-callhome)# enable

MDS(config-callhome)# transport email from <callhome@company.com>

MDS(config-callhome)# transport email smtp-server

MDS(config-callhome)# no destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group All

MDS(config-callhome)# destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group Syslog-group-port

MDS(config-callhome)# destination-profile short-txt-destination email-addr <youremail@company.com

MDS(config-callhome)# no duplicate-message throttle

Re: Receiving email notification of port state changes

Hello,

What you need to do is to implement RMON so that you can get events related to interfaces flapping.

I assume you have callhome configured at present which allows you to get notified in case of critical system events.

The following link will help you understand and configure RMON:

Re: Receiving email notification of port state changes

Can RMON monitor Up/Down events? I thought it can only monitor absolute/delta changes in numeric values of SNMP MIB objects.

Re: Receiving email notification of port state changes

We have Call home here and we get notification of Port going Up & Down. I think you need to set the correct Level for MsgLevel (Debug 1) and AlertGroups (Linecard).
