Modifying Alarm Dump Settings

Modifying Alarm Dump Settings

After you enable the alarm dump function, alarm messages will be dumped automatically to a specific FTP or SFTP server when the quantity exceeds a system-definable threshold.

Prerequisite

  • If alarm information is stored on an FTP server, the communication is normal between the FTP server and the storage system. To improve communication reliability, you are advised to configure the FTP server and the storage system on the same LAN and their IP addresses in the same network segment.
  • If alarm information is stored on an SFTP server, the communication is normal between the SFTP server and the storage system. To improve communication reliability, you are advised to configure the SFTP server and the storage system on the same LAN and their IP addresses in the same network segment.
  • If alarm information is stored on an FTP server and a firewall is configured on the network, port 21 is enabled.
  • If alarm information is stored on an SFTP server and a firewall is configured on the network, port 22 is enabled.

Context

  • If alarm dump is not configured for the storage system, when the number of generated events reaches 45,000, the alarm named The Space That Stores Event Logs Is To Be Used Up is triggered. When the number of generated events reaches 50,000 (the upper limit), the first 10,000 events are deleted automatically.
  • If alarm dump is configured for the storage system:
    • For V500R007C20 and earlier versions, when the number of generated events reaches 45,000, the alarm named The Space That Stores Event Logs Is To Be Used Up is not triggered. When the number of generated events reaches 50,000 (the upper limit), the first 10,000 events are dumped automatically to the specified FTP server or SFTP server.
    • For V500R007C30, when the number of generated events reaches 45,000, the alarm named The Space That Stores Event Logs Is To Be Used Up is not triggered. When the number of login and logout events reaches 20,000 (the upper limit), the first 10,000 events are dumped automatically to the specified FTP server or SFTP server. When the number of generated events reaches 50,000 (the upper limit), the first 10,000 events are dumped automatically to the specified FTP server or SFTP server.
NOTE:

To ensure that all events generated by the storage system are retained, it is recommended that you configure alarm dump.

Procedure

  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Alarm Settings.
  3. Modify parameters for the alarm dump.

        • Each field of the IP address cannot be blank and must be an integer.
        • The value of the first field ranges from 1 to 223 (excluding 127).
        • The values of other fields range from 0 to 255.
        • The IP address cannot be a special address such as the broadcast address.
      • An IPv6 address has the following requirements:

        • In each 16-bit field, zeros before integers can be removed. However, at least one digit must be reserved in each field.
        • If the IP address contains a long string of zeros, you can represent the neighboring zeros with double colons (::) in the colon-separated hexadecimal field. Each IP address contains only one double-colon (::). The double-colon (::) can also be used to represent neighboring zeros of the IP address.
        • The IP address cannot be a special address such as network address, loop address, or multicast address.
