Commands for managing events

You can use specific Data ONTAP commands in the event family for managing events on your storage system.

You can manage the following event features:
  • Event destination

    Consists of a name and destination to which events are sent. Destinations can be email addresses, SNMP trap hosts, and syslog servers.

  • Event route

    Describes which events generate notifications. An event route is a mapping between events and their destinations. An event route includes information about severity, destinations, and notification thresholds.

  • Configuration for event notification and logging

    Specifies the email "from" address, the email "to" address, whether to send events to the console, and the maximum size of the log file.

  • Mail-history records

    List of emailed event notifications. You also can delete mail-history records.

  • SNMP trap-history records

    List of event notifications that have been sent to SNMP traps. You also can delete a single SNMP trap-history record.
