Event Definitions

You can define how the Open Manage Network Manager treats messages (events) coming into the system. Administrators can define event behavior deciding whether it is suppressed, rejected or generates an Alarm. Manage the definitions of events in this portlet.

In this screen, you can configure events that, when correlated as described in Event Processing Rules, trigger actions.

Columns include the MIB Name, Event Name, Notification OID, Severity for associated alarms, and Default Behavior. See Event Definition Editor for how to alter these. Right-click a selected event definition for the following menu items:

Edit -- Either open the selected event in Event Definition Editor, or open a details panel for the underlying equipment.

Set Behavior -- This lets you select from the following options.

Reject – Every received message is rejected.

Suppress – The message is tracked in Event History and then ignored.

Alarm – The message is tracked in Event History and then processed, with Correlated events and Event Processing Rules of any type other than Syslog.

Set Severity -- Set the alarm severity for the selected event.

MIB -- This lets you upload a new MIB to your event definitions.

You can also configure an Aging Policy and View events as PDF in this menu. See Redcell > Database Aging Policies (DAP), and View as PDF for more about those options.

To see an event’s propagation policy, you can view the editor panel described below. See also Alarm Propagation to Services and Customers: What Happens.
