Active IQ Unified Manager Discussions

Cannot identify resource being over-utilized


We get alerts almost every night about Node Resources Over-Utilized and then about 10 minutes later the obselete email as well. But the alert doesn't specify what node resource was over-utilized. Was it CPU, MEM, DISK or some networking counter? The event details doesn't really show much either. Any idea how I can identify what resource is being over-utilized?


This is what it looks like:

Re: Cannot identify resource being over-utilized




the event you pasted is what the On Command perf passes to On Command Unified, and that's why it's lacking...


if you click on the event you will see a description like "Description:     Perf. Capacity Used value of 109% on NODE1 has triggered a WARNING event to identify potential performance problems in the data processing unit."


In case of the alert i published. it's driven from configuration i have in "configuration">"performance thresholds" but there are some that are built in and not configurable 😞
