As of BBSM 5.3, BBSM provides enhanced error reporting. BBSM now creates events in the Windows Applicaton Log for many errors that were previously unreported. Error-notification SNMP traps, called alerts, can be generated by enabling the Alerts option. When this option is enabled, BBSM not only creates Windows events but also generates alerts for them. These alerts can be displayed by using third-party tools.
These are the different options for viewing BBSM events and errors:
•Use the System Summary web page. Refer to the chapter on monitoring performance with the System Summary web page in the Cisco BBSM 5.3 Operations Guide.
•View the application events for BBSM in the Windows Event Log Viewer.
•Enable the Alerts options and use third-party tools to view the SNMP trap alerts.
This section describes how to configure BBSM to generate alerts for system errors.
Step 1 From the Dashboard, click WEBconfig. The BBSM Server Settings web page appears.
Step 2 In the NavBar, navigate to the Alerts web page. The Alerts web page appears. (See Figure 21-1.)
