Create new Events on Switches

Hi all,

me again oops

After playing around a while with the new NetMRG, I'd like to trap events on mulitiple switches with 'tons' of Ethernet-Ports

I wonder if it's possible to create an event on each port to get the IO-Errors which would beeing 'immedeatly' visible in the event log.

Now I have to questions to this idea

First one Could this intention bring down the server by ments of CPU- and/or memory load?

Second one How could I manage to set up events for all switches? It would be quite frustrating to manually set up each port with it's rules.

Thanks for you real good product and for your response.

With regards

Rainy

What your proposing for #1 is commonly handled through SNMP traps. NetMRG doesn't have any trap handling currently built in; only polling, so I'm not aware of a solution to that ATM.

For #2, I believe you could add the events you desire to the monitors your templates are based on and re-apply the templates to all your switch ports. I think this will try to add the missing events to your existing monitors.

Hi Doug,

thank you for your response.

However, this doesn't work anyhow. Maybe I'm wrong, however I tried several things to do the trick and was not lucky. (

What I meant with the question of bringing down the server was how much CPU- and memory-load the Event-Process needs for processing many events...

Currently I try to set up each port manually - til' I find another solution roll

We don't have any numbers on what event processing does for cpu time or load.
