Alarm Settings

Function Description

The Alarm Settings page allows you to configure:

  • Syslog notifications: enables logs to be sent to a third-party server via syslog messages.

  • Trap notifications: enables alarms, events, and trap properties to be sent to a third-party server via trap messages.

    NOTE:

    Traps are messages that are sent from the iBMC to a third-party server without being explicitly requested. Traps are used to report events and critical, major, and minor alarms.

  • Email notifications: enables an email to be sent to the specified mailboxes over a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server when an alarm is generated.

GUI

Choose Alarm & SEL from the main menu, and select Alarm Settings from the navigation tree.
