QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

Hello all

I am being asked about alerting for specific snapmirror events.  I looked at my 4.0 DFM ( 40D2 ) installation and queries the events:

[root@sjcfilermon01 ~]# dfm eventType list | grep mirror

snapmirror:not-scheduled                      Normal       sm.state

snapmirror:not-working                        Error        sm.state

snapmirror:off                                Normal       sm.state

snapmirror:possible-problem                   Warning      sm.state

snapmirror:unknown-state                      Warning      sm.state

snapmirror:working                            Normal       sm.state

[root@sjcfilermon01 ~]#

If you look here - http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/DFM_win/rel40/html/software/opsmgr/GUID-BEAFFA1B-6405-4A3D-8A22-8C38ED98394D.html … you can see many events but when you query DFM for events for snapmirror, only six appear.

My question is; can i alarm for specific events like "Update Completed" or "Initialize Completed" as examples.

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

Arg look at that ... okay so in the GUI these are not appearing ... this means i need to use the command line to create a specific alarm for any of these specific events?

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

Hi emanuel,

          I can see them in the GUI too, and the first post you made shows output from cli.

Attached is the screenshot of the gui.

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

interesting; there must be a reason why i am not seeing it at my customer site; is there a license issue on the controllers i have to be aware of or is it i am only on 4.0D2 and i need to upgrade to the lastest patch?

seeing is believing and these questions will be discussed on a phone call as a general session so i have time to use a DFM server here in the labs to double check

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

On the full event list posted, what is meant or can you fully define what the following are noting what is and is not working?

snapmirror:not-working                        Error        sm.state
snapmirror:working                            Normal       sm.state

So what is working, the mirror, the update itself or something else?

Re: QUESTION - Specific SnapMirror events

I think its the update.........
