Just want to know if the DFM has the function to start another action or running a script once an event or alarm has been trigged?
Just an example, say if a snapmirror break event trigged in the DFM, can it enable another action or script to re-establish the snapmirror automatically?

Yes, It is possible. DFM supports this.
Refer the FAQ 7.4 & 7.5 at http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/DFM_win/r

By looking into the FAQ, it should be evident that you’d be using the DFM CLI to associate a script to a DFM alarm. Make sure you test the alarm to ensure that the script is being executed when the alarm is triggered
dfm alarm test <alarm id>
(Note: If you don’t know the ID – type the command “dfm alarm list”)
If the script doesn’t execute then try the following: add the appropriate switches for authenticating the execution of the script:
dfm alarm modify -A <admin-login-name> –u <AlarmScriptRunAs> -s <Path of the script>
Hope this helps.
Thanks and regards

This is a simple functionality from command line that should be brought into the GUI in a future release. I'll see if an RFE for this is already filed.
