How Do I Disable Alarm Reporting on Interfaces of Network Devices

How Do I Disable Alarm Reporting on Interfaces of Network Devices


Enterprise PCs often need to be restarted. The restart operation will cause interfaces on the access switch to report link disconnection alarms. If you do not need to monitor these alarms, forbid or shield these alarms.

Possible Causes

When PCs connected to an access switch restart, the links between the PCs and access switch are disconnected, and link disconnection alarms are generated on eSight.


  • (Preferred) Method 1: Disable alarm reporting on interfaces (this method is only supported by some Huawei devices). After you disable reporting of a specified type of alarms on interfaces of a device, the device does not generate the specified type of alarms.

    This operation requires eSight to deliver commands to the device. Therefore, eSight must have the write community permission on the device.

    1. Choose Topology > Topology Management from the main menu.
    2. Right-click a target device and choose Device Information > Interface from the shortcut menu.

    3. Select a target interface and click Disable Alarm Reporting.
  • Method 2: Shield alarms. After you shield a type of alarms, the device still generates this type of alarms, but the alarms will not be displayed in the current alarm list.
    1. Choose Fault > Current Alarms from the main menu.
    2. Click Set Alarm Masking Rule next to the target alarm.

    3. On the displayed page, select an interface-based masking rule and click Apply.

    4. Optional: If the alarm is generated on the local device or other devices, modify the alarm masking task and add the alarm source to the masking rule.
      1. Choose Fault > Alarm Settings from the main menu. Choose Masking Rule from the navigation tree on the left.
      2. Click to modify the alarm masking task and add the alarm source to the masking rule.
