IMC v7.1 patch 10: interface up/down filtering

Hi all,

 

I've setup a IMC server v7.1 patch 10. I would like a easy way to filter the up/down alarms only on the edge ports.

Most of the time this is a PC that is powerd of, so I don't want to receive an alert for it.

If the uplinks goes down, I would like to receive one of course.

 

The way I did this, was sytem settings -> filter PC-connected links. But that didn't work. I don't want to add all the PC's to IMC.

I also used to setup custom filters for up/down alert, but then I have to create for every switch a custom filter. That is a lot of work.

 

Has someone an easier solution?

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

Kind regards,

You probably also need to enable filtering for 'disconnected links'

Hi Lindsay,

 

But when an uplink failes, is there still an alert then?

I typically make a trunk of 2 or more links, so I want to know when 1 of them failes.

 

Kind regards,

Yes, you will still get alarms for inter-switch links.
