Using Events

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 indicated detected changes on the monitored devices. Reconfiguration events with the Changed subtype indicate changes to device items.
Audit Changes to the System
