To change the CPU or Memory threshold alarming from a single instance to the aggregate value of all instances, copy the following entries from the $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/Cabletron/EventDisp file into the $SPECROOT/custom/Events/EventDisp file and follow the directions on commenting and uncommenting the appropriate lines.


# Comment out the following lines if you do not want
# CPU Threshold alarms to occur for individual instances
0x00010f01      R Aprisma.EventPairTimeAttr, 0x00010f02, "0x00010f03 -:-", 0x12bce
0x00010f03 E 50 A 2, 0x00010f03
0x00010f02 E 50 C    0x00010f03


# Comment out the following lines if you do not want
# Memory Threshold alarms to occur for individual instances
0x00010f04      R Aprisma.EventPairTimeAttr, 0x00010f05, "0x00010f06 -:-", 0x12bcf
0x00010f06 E 50 A 2, 0x00010f06
0x00010f05 E 50 C    0x00010f06


# Uncomment the following lines if you want
# CPU Threshold alarms to occur based on the
# aggregate utilization of all the instances
# 0x00010f07      R Aprisma.EventPairTimeAttr, 0x00010f08, "0x00010f09 -:-", 0x12bce
# 0x00010f09 E 50 A 2, 0x00010f09
# 0x00010f08 E 50 C    0x00010f09


# Uncomment the following lines if you want
# Memory Threshold alarms to occur based on the
# aggregate utilization of all the instances
# 0x00010f0a      R Aprisma.EventPairTimeAttr, 0x00010f0b, "0x00010f0c -:-", 0x12bcf
# 0x00010f0c E 50 A 2, 0x00010f0c

After making the changes to the $SPECROOT/custom/Events/EventDisp file, you will need to update the SpectroSERVER Event Configuration by doing the following:


1. Open a OneClick Console as an ADMIN user
2. Find and select the VNM model
3. Click on the Information tab in the Component Detail panel
4. Find and expand the SpectroSERVER Control folder
5. Click on the Update Event Configuration button

How to change the SPECTRUM CPU/Memory threshold alarming to alarm on the aggregate value and not the individual instance value
Out of the box, SPECTRUM is configured to alarm whenever a single instance of CPU or Memory exceeds a specified threshold. However, there are some users who would rather see SPECTRUM alarm on an aggregate value of all CPU or Memory instances instead of a single instance.

Problem Environment:
Aggregate CPU
Aggregate Memory
SPECTRUM 08.01.00.00
SPECTRUM 09.00.00.00
