PCM - Defining Policy based on a Event from Traffic Manager

PCM - Defining Policy based on a Event from Traffic Manager

Hi at all,
is it possible to define a Policy based on a event from the Traffic Mannager ? I have defined such a policy - but it will not run, because the source of this policy is not a device - but the Traffic Manager.
The Goal is to get a EMail when a Switch Port exceeds the theshold of Port Utilisation.

Thank you for your help

Re: PCM - Defining Policy based on a Event from Traffic Manager

Can you specify the details of the Alert you created for the purpose?

The below alert should work

Alert Type:-
Policy Manager:Event-based Alert

Filter:-
has severity GREATER THAN Informational
contains: Critical threshold violation

Source:-
Alert source as Event source

Also check if the email configuration is proper(Preferences>SMTP Profiles)

Hope that helps

Re: PCM - Defining Policy based on a Event from Traffic Manager

Details of the Alert:

Times: Everytimes
Sources: Interconnect Devices
Targets: No targets for the policy
Altert Type - Polic Manager Event based Alert

Filter:
Alert me when I receive 1 event that: has severity GREATER THAN infomational an within a period of 60 seconds

Actions:
Send EMail to ....
(Note: sending EMail works fine)

--------------------------------------------

The solution for the problem was to define the Alert in the Source Tab as "Alert Source(s) as contents of event"

I have made this settings - and since then - it works fine.

Thank you for your assistance.
