We have netsight 6.3 and Extreme switches. I was looking into the Alarm Manager, alarm name Interface % Usage. It looks like a handy alarm, that we could use to alert us on usage of an uplink for example. I saw the HUB post about adding a device group, (Calling it PortGroup1 in the example), then add the specific interface ports. (The example on the HUB was for link down. Which shows up as a "by selected trap option" and has the snmp trap defined.)
For interface % usage, it points to a criteria of By Threshold.
When I go to that and read the statistic description (screen shot below) does this mean the alarm won't work with anything other than snmpV1 / V2? I set the alarm up to a low threshold for a port, and don't get any alert, so I'm wondering if that's it, or if I'm missing a step. Or is there another way?
Essentially we'd like to be notified via email (we have alarm notification alerts working on other items) when the utilization on a port gets to a certain value.
