The Event Management System (EMS) collects and displays information about events that occur on your storage system. Messages contain specific information about events.
Event messages for high-severity events appear on your system console or LCD, if your system has one, and are written to the system's event log. You can have event messages sent to an email destination, syslog server, or SNMP trap host.
- What event messages contain
Each event message contains specific information that can help you understand the event that occurred on your system and, when applicable, correct a problem. Each event message has a severity level.
- Commands for managing events
You can use specific Data ONTAP commands in the event family for managing events on your storage system.
- Setting up the Event Management System
You can use these guidelines to set up and configure EMS to reduce the number of event messages that you receive.
- 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.
