Correlations

This screen lets you configure Correlated Events and Correlation Key Bindings. For example, a link down event could correlate with a link up event, or an alarm with a clear alarm event.

In the Correlated Events panel, click Add to display a selector (with filter) to find events to correlate with the one you are editing.

In Correlation Key Bindings, use the right/left arrows to select Key Variables from Available Variables. The variables considered keys for correlation are the key bindings for the target alarm in the correlation process. This means that if event A is defined to include event B as a correlated event, comparison of the key bindings defined for event B is also considered when comparing a new alarm for event A to an existing alarm for event B.

Notification OID -- As with parent event definitions, this is the object ID. Open Manage Network Manager automatically generates this based on the Notification OID of the parent and key binding values entered. For example, if the parent event definition has a Notification OID of “1.2.3.4” and the key binding values of the extended definition are 5 and 6 (the parent must have previously been configured to have two extension bindings available) then the resulting Notification OID for this new extended event definition will be “1.2.3.4::5:6”.
