EVM daemon detects a high number of events occurring over several minutes on True 64 Unix

Dear All,

Appreciate your help on the below problem.

We are encountering a problem on True 64 Unix Server.

We've received the below message :

" EVM daemon detects a high number of events occurring over several minutes"
This high priority event is posted by the EVM daemon when it detects a high number of events occurring over several minutes.

Action: Use the EVM event viewer or the evmget(1) command to review
the event log for the source of the activity. .

We've proceeded to execute the command "evmget" and get the the "correctable error" file attached".

Please advise how to sort out this issue.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

the event told you too much events occured. Please use the evmget command to list ALL messages and check what kind of event leads to the "overflow" event.

Ralf,

I was looking into manual pages but couldn't find it. Can I specify a time range for evmshow to select?

Here is an example of the events with priority highar than 500 of the last day.
For more info about the filtering --> man EvmFilter

EVM_SHOW_TEMPLATE='@timestamp [@priority] @host_name @@'
export EVM_SHOW_TEMPLATE

/usr/bin/evmget -A -f "[age < 1d] and [priority >= 500]"

To err is human, but to really faul things up requires a computer

See "man 5 EvmFilter"

example filterstatement

"[age lt 2h]"
"[since 2004:3:5:08:30:00]"

Michael,

seems you need a "man-page" training ;-)
