Using Events
The following scenarios are typical reasons to view events:
  • Troubleshoot Performance Issues
    To troubleshoot performance issues with a specific device, you can filter the events to that device. The
    Events
    view filters the complete list of events to display only events for the selected device.
  • Monitor Thresholds
    Thresholds are configured to generate events for specified devices, components, or groups. Use these events to track when the monitored devices do not meet operating requirements.
  • Track Configuration Changes
    When
    Automatically Update Metric Families
    is not selected for a custom monitoring profile, view the events log to configuration changes. Reconfiguration events with the
    Detected
    subtype indicate detected changes on the monitored devices. Reconfiguration events with the
    Changed
    subtype indicate changes to device items.
    For more information about the
    Automatically Update Metric Families
    option, see Configure Monitoring Profiles.
  • Audit Changes to the System
    Administration events provide useful information about changes to the system configuration, such as the time of a change.
