Configuring Platform Event Filters

Configuring Platform Event Filters

This chapter includes the following sections:

Platform Event Filters

A platform event filter (PEF) can trigger an action and generate an alert when a critical hardware-related event occurs. For each PEF, you can choose the action to be taken (or take no action) when a platform event occurs. You can also choose to generate and send an alert when a platform event occurs. Alerts are sent as an SNMP trap, so you must configure an SNMP trap destination before the alerts can be sent.

You can globally enable or disable the generation of platform event alerts. When disabled, alerts are not sent even if PEFs are configured to send them.

Enabling Platform Event Alerts

Before You Begin

You must log in as a user with admin privileges to enable platform event alerts.

Procedure
    Step 1   In the Navigation pane, click the Admin tab.
    Step 2   On the Admin tab, click Event Management.
    Step 3   In the Event Management pane, click the Platform Event Filters tab.
    Step 4   In the Platform Event Alerts area, check the Enable Platform Event Alerts check box.
    Step 5   Click Save Changes.

    Disabling Platform Event Alerts

    Before You Begin

    You must log in as a user with admin privileges to disable platform event alerts.

    Procedure
      Step 1   In the Navigation pane, click the Admin tab.
      Step 2   On the Admin tab, click Event Management.
      Step 3   In the Event Management pane, click the Platform Event Filters tab.
      Step 4   In the Platform Event Alerts area, uncheck the Enable Platform Event Alerts check box.
      Step 5   Click Save Changes.

      Configuring Platform Event Filters

      Before You Begin

      You must log in as a user with admin privileges to configure platform event filters.

      Procedure
        Step 1   In the Navigation pane, click the Admin tab.
        Step 2   On the Admin tab, click Event Management.
        Step 3   In the Event Management pane, click the Platform Event Filters tab.
        Step 4   In the Platform Event Filters area, complete the following fields for each event:
        Name Description

        ID column

        The unique filter ID.

        Event column

        The name of the event filter.

        Action column

        For each filter, select the desired action from the scrolling list box. This can be one of the following:

        • None—No action is taken.
        • Reboot—The server is rebooted.
        • Power Cycle—The server is power cycled.
        • Power Off—The server is powered off.

        Send Alert column

        For each filter that you want to send an alert, check the associated check box in this column.

        Note   

        In order to send an alert, the filter trap settings must be configured properly and the Enable Platform Event Filters check box must also be checked.

        Step 5   Click Save Changes.

        What to Do Next

        If you configure any PEFs to send an alert, complete the following tasks:

        Configuring SNMP Trap Settings

        Before You Begin

        You must log in as a user with admin privileges to perform this task.

        Procedure
          Step 1   In the Navigation pane, click the Admin tab.
          Step 2   On the Admin tab, click Communications Services.
          Step 3   In the Communications Services pane, click the SNMP tab.
          Step 4   In the Common Trap Destination Settings area, complete the following fields:
          Name Description

          Trap Community String field

          The name of the SNMP community group to which trap information should be sent.

          SNMP Version drop-down list

          The SNMP version and model used for the trap. This can be one of the following:

          Type field

          If you select V2 for the version, this is the type of trap to send. This can be one of the following:

          • Trap
          • Inform
          Step 5   In the Trap Destinations area, complete the following fields:
          Name Description

          ID column

          The trap destination ID. This value cannot be modified.

          Enabled column

          For each SNMP trap destination that you want to use, check the associated check box in this column.

          Trap Destination IP Address column

          The IP address to which SNMP trap information is sent.

          Tip   

          To change the settings for a trap or to send a test trap message, administrators can click the trap row in the table.

          Step 6   Click Save Changes.

          Sending a Test SNMP Trap Message

          Before You Begin

          You must log in as a user with admin privileges to perform this task.

          Procedure
            Step 1   In the Navigation pane, click the Admin tab.
            Step 2   On the Admin tab, click Event Management.
            Step 3   In the Event Management pane, click the Trap Settings tab.
            Step 4   In the Trap Destinations area, click the row of the desired SNMP trap destination.

            The Traps Details dialog box opens.

            Step 5   Click Send SNMP trap.

            An SNMPv1 test trap message is sent to the trap destination.

            Note   

            The trap must be configured and enabled in order to send a test message.


            Interpreting Platform Event Traps

            A CIMC platform event alert sent as an SNMP trap contains an enterprise object identifier (OID) in the form 1.3.6.1.4.1.3183.1.1.0.event. The first ten fields of the OID represent the following information: iso(1).org(3).dod(6).internet(1).private(4).enterprises(1).wired_for_management(3183).PET(1).version(1).version(0), indicating an IPMI platform event trap (PET) version 1.0 message. The last field is an event number, indicating the specific condition or alert being notified.

            Platform Event Trap Descriptions

            The following table provides a description of the event being notified in a platform event trap message, based on the event number in the trap OID.
