Event policies?


Userlevel 1
We're attempting to use the Event Policy alerting that is available in Wing 5.8 to monitor our APs in various locations.

I've found numerous locations on the web and Wing documentation on how to set it up, but what we need is a breakdown of the event names themselves. There is a tremendous amount of modules which contain many event names, and sure we could probably take some educated guesses at what some of them do, but it sure would be nice to know exactly what each one does.

Thanks

There is not master list or book or PDF that states what each event is. The descriptions are a bit vague at times. I too have asked for a list of all of the events in the policy, but, none exist. You can how ever do a "show context include-factory" to list them all out. Add a "|include" after that to show just the DOT11 (for example) events. That will help narrow down which alerts\events you want to be sent out via email log or SNMP trap. The below table is from the CLI reference guide for 5.8.x. IT show the different event modules that you should be able to list out each on.

Go to page 434 4.1.41.2.1 event...there you will find more detail.

Bin Han, your reply is about as useless as the fact that there is no documentation on each event.

Get a copy of the "CLI Reference Guide for 582 MN-002675-01" and go to page 434.
