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.
    Figure 1. 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.
      Figure 2. 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.
        Figure 3. 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:

        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.
