When will we be able to disable alert generation for an entire cluster at a time in OCUM?
Currently it is impossible as you have to try and exclude the cluster, each node, each lif, each volume, etc. instead of just a checkbox or button to temporarily disable alerts. This is much needed during periods of maintenance to a system to avoid constant ticket generation.
Hello. Thanks for the reply. While there is an exclude tab for cluster, we've found that this only excludes overall cluster specific events. Events for nodes, volumes, aggregates, lifs, etc. within the cluster are all still triggered even when the "cluster" is excluded. I've attached a screenshot of where I'm looking.
New Unified Manager maintenance window functionality You can define a Unified Manager maintenance window to suppress events and alerts for a specific timeframe when you have scheduled cluster maintenance and you do not want to receive a flood of unwanted notifications. During a maintenance window the events related to all objects on that cluster are still generated, but they do not appear in any of the UI pages, and no alerts or other types of notification are sent for these events. See the topic "What a Unified Manager maintenance window is" in the online help for more details.
