So, i'm just curious as why i don't see all the events when i dump dfm event list -q. When I open up the GUI dashboard and click events, I see events that aren't listed in dfm event list -q
The reason why this is important to me is because i'm doing event based acknowledgement and deletion based on dates and the GUI is throwing me off. The CLI loks fine,
Any comments would be great.
Instead use the events report.
linux-t5gs:~ # dfm report | grep -i events-
events-current-report Report of all the current unresolved events with warning or above severity
events-all-report Report of all events with warning or above severity
events-warning show current warning or worse events
events-error show current error or worse events
events-critical show current critical or worse events
events-emergency show current emergency events
events-unack show unacknowledged events
events-perf show current performance events
events-config-changes show current configuration changed locally events
events-history show all historic events
events-history-deleted show all deleted historic events
events-history-acked show all acknowledged historic events
events-history-perf show all historic performance events
Ok, that's show all the events... Now i will re-write the code to do the autoacknowledgement based on event report.
So, basically, i'm writing powershell command to purge all events older than 7 days. Now the frustrating part is that you guys don't put the year for current year, so I have to create a date based object to handle this.
Any chance on adding current year?
The current behaviour is not going to change. BTW you can also use the dfm event detail <eventid> |grep -i eventtimestamp to get the year as well.
linux-t5gs:~ # dfm event detail 276 | grep -i eventTimestamp
eventTimestamp 2013-07-17 06:11:10.000000
The issue is that isn't scalable for the solution i'm looking for. So, what i need to do is your take your report, and create a date based object to do purging from.
I have to get you involved with powershell man.. It's the ticket.. 🙂
Adai - That option
eventspurgeinterval - it's set to 4 weeks. But that's not working in our production environment. What does that actually do, b/c If I do a dfm report events, I still see the data from April.
So what exactly does that option do
If you had upgraded to 5.2 with value of 4 weeks and all events older than 4 weeks would have been purged. But post upgrade, it starts accumulating. The behaviour is changing the upcoming release, similar to what happens during upgrade.
