Does anyone know how to fix this? I have been receiving, every 45 minutes or so, this e-mail from DFM:
An Information event at 23 Jan 12:28 E. South America Daylight Time on Mgmt Station xxxhostnamexxx:
Testing alarm 4
I couldn't find anything related to this on the Operations Manager, has anyone come across it?
A while ago i had a similiar issue with a "ghost" alarm that wasn't appearing in the console
dfm alarm list from the cli and see what alarm 4 is
If it's not valid, delete it
Thanks for your reply.
This is what I found:
Event Severity All
Event Name volume-almost-full
Time From 00:00
Time To 23:59
Repeat Notify Yes
Repeat Interval 45
Email Addresses ADMIN@HOST
SNMP Trap Recipients 22.214.171.124
Doesn't make much sense, right?
Is that a valid alarm? Are you using that alarm? If not, I would say delete it. if so, delete it and recreate it. I'm not sure why you are seeing test alarm. Unless you are actively getting volume fulls
Yes, it was a valid alarm.
As suggested, I have deleted and recreated it, and now I don't receive any alarm!
I will give it an hour or so to see if it starts working.
It is not good practice to delete the alarm, you are getting repeated alarm because you have created repeated alarm on volume-almost-full
event. The use case of setting repeated alarm is that until user doesn't resolve the issue he will keep get repeated alarm.
Here, if you don't want repeated alarm then you can acknowledge and the resolve the event if issue has fixed.
You have to ack it and then delete, it wont happen again.
