IMC 7.1 and 5920's hundreds of alarms

I have a couple 5920 IRF stacks I'm monitoring with IMC that show this error every couple hours. Anybody know how to squelch it I'm assuming at the 5920 side?

Do you want to fix the problem, or do you just want to stop IMC alerting you about it?


It's better if you can fix it at source. That switch is generating a lot of traps, and I think they're spurious. See here for some more info:


It is possible to change the IMC alerting for this, but it's better to try and stop devices generating so many unwanted traps.
