Finding corrective actions for events

You can use the event route show command to display information about event routes and to find corrective actions for events so that you can resolve system problems.

About this task

To find the corrective action for a single event, use the -messagename parameter. To find the corrective action for multiple events, use the -instance parameter.


  1. Use the event log show command to display the events that have occurred.


    For example, you can display all the events that occur at a specific time interval:

    cluster1::> event log show -time 
    "11/9/2010 13:45:00".."2/16/2012 09:58:00"
    Time               Node     Severity   Event
    2/16/2012 09:56:31 cluster1 NOTICE     raid.rg.media_scrub.start: owner="", rg="/aggr0/plex0/rg0"
    . . .

  2. Enter the following command to see the corrective action for an event: event route show -messagename event name -instance


    The following example displays the corrective action and other details for an event:

    cluster1::> event route show -messagename adminapi.time.zoneDiff 
    Message Name: adminapi.time.zoneDiff
