A flood of critical events may trigger in the unicenter notification queue due to system down. This could cause a large number of unwanted page/emails if unicenter notification is used.
This queue may need to be cleared to prevent a large number of unwanted emails/pages from being sent.
To prevent any notification, clear the unicenter notification queue as follows
From a dos command prompt issue the following commands:
- Stop "CA Notification Services"
- Clear the CA notification queue from any events queued for page/email
del <drive>:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter NSM\UNS\runtime\checkpoint\*.*
- Restart "Ca Notification services"
- Verify if CA Notification Services" started successfully.
