An event tells you that something has changed or happened in your managed network. They are generated from a number of different inputs, such as polled information, SNMP Traps, and Syslog messages.
- For example, if a certain port utilization exceeds its predetermined threshold, Entuity will raise a Port Utilization High Event.
Every event has a severity level. You are able to configure severity levels for each event. Incidents inherit the highest severity level from the currently raised event.
- For example, if an event has a severity level of Major, then the incident that it raises will have a severity level of Major. If that incident is then updated by an event with a severity level of Critical, that incident then inherits the Critical severity level.
Event severity levels are as follows:
|Display Severity and Color||Description|
|1 - Green||Information or Cleared|
|2 - Yellow||Minor|
|3 - Amber||Major|
|4 - Orange||Severe|
|5 - Red||Critical|
