LACP Toggling, Threshold Alarm in EMC


Userlevel 2
Hello,

recently, we had a problem with a toggling LACP group and as a result a bigger network outage.
We currently collect all the switch logs inside Netsight/EMC.

Now I would like to create an alarm, which detects toggling LACP links, so the events LACP.RemPortFromAggr and LACP.AddPortToAggr would be interesting.
But I don't want to receive alarms, if this happens only 2 times per minute - if someone restarts a server, I don't want to get an alarm.

Is there a solution to create a log-alert including a threshold?
Would be interesting for other logs as well, e.g. port up/down with > 10 times per minute...

Best Regards
Johannes

I'm not sure there is in Netsight. Lets see if a Netsight pro can confirm.

SIEM can do that for sure. Netsight i doubt.

Such a shame, would be a nice feature - then we need to look for a good SIEM I guess...
