#1 - Fabric Login -- A server has "Logged into" the fabric. When you boot a server, it will login to the fabric. If you pull the fibre cable, and then re-insert it, the switch will request another Fabric Login.

#2, and #3. These are "noise" messages that I largely ignore in my fabrics. Notice that you have fairly rigid default values on the notification level values in the Fabric Watch fields. You can change these values if you really feel like it to have more leeway before notifying you of the change. You also need to have the time to mess with it.
