Snapshot and SnapMirror mail alert configuration

sawai

I would like to detect Snapshot and SnapMirror success and failure via email in ONTAP 9.9.1.
Is it possible to use EMS email alert settings (event config, event destination, event filter, event notification, etc.) to be notified of Snapshot and SnapMirror success and failure?

If it is possible, can you please tell me how to configure it?

Make a copy of the filter (you cannot modify the system filters)

event filter copy -filter-name important-events -new my-events

 

Update as you see fit

event catalog show -message-name snapmirror*

(this will show the 126 available messages to filter on in 9.9.1)

 

Simply add them to your filter (just an example, you will need to determine which to add)

event filter rule add -filter-name my-events -type include -message-name snapmirror.copy.FailedErr -position 1

DFM/Operations Manager/OnCommand(all different evolutions of the NetApp monitoring and managment system) allow for monitoring of snapmirrors, including alerting via pager or email.

 

Easy installed with a OVA or on a Windows/Linux Host.

Thank you for your answer.

 

If I want to monitor Snapshot and SnapMirror success/failure via email notifications, is it correct that I cannot implement this by just using ONTAP's standard EMS alert settings, but need Active IQ Unified Manager?

 

Best Regards.

You can configure EMS alert to send important event notifications only to an email address.

"important-events" is a system defined filter that cannot be modified.

 

Configuring important EMS events to send email notifications

Is it possible to modify the event filter, "important-events"?

You can use Active IQ Unified Manager also any 3. Party Tool or build your monitoring Software.

If you use Unified Manager, you also so many other Options, for example to generate Reports etc etc..
