Dotted OID format:
sampling-interval: Sets the sampling interval in the range of 5 to 65535 seconds.
absolute: Specifies absolute sampling. RMON compares the value of the variable with the rising and
falling thresholds at the end of the sampling interval.
delta: Specifies delta sampling. RMON subtracts the value of the variable at the previous sample from
the current value, and then compares the difference with the rising and falling thresholds.
startup-alarm: Specifies alarms that can be generated when the alarm entry becomes valid. If no alarm
is specified, RMON can generate a rising alarm or a falling alarm depending on the first sample.
rising: Generates a rising alarm if the first sample after the entry becomes valid is greater than or equal
to the rising threshold.
falling: Generates a falling alarm if the first sample after the entry becomes valid is less than or equal to
the rising threshold.
rising-falling: Generates a rising alarm if the first sample crosses the rising threshold, or generates a
falling alarm if the first sample crosses the falling threshold.
rising-threshold threshold-value1 event-entry1: Sets the rising threshold. The threshold-value1 argument
represents the rising threshold in the range of –2147483648 to +2147483647. The event-entry1 argument
represents the index of the event that is triggered when the rising threshold is crossed. The value range
for the event-entry1 argument is 0 to 65535. If 0 is specified, the alarm does not trigger any event.
falling-threshold threshold-value2 event-entry2: Sets the falling threshold. The threshold-value2 argument
represents the falling threshold in the range of –2147483648 to +2147483647. The event-entry2
argument represents the index of the event that is triggered when the falling threshold is crossed. The
value range for the event-entry2 argument is 0 to 65535. If 0 is specified, the alarm does not trigger any
owner text: Specifies the entry owner, a case-sensitive string of 1 to 127 characters. The string can
contain spaces, but it cannot contain the question mark (?) or any unprintable control characters in the
US ASCII character set.
You can create up to 60 entries in the RMON alarm table.
Each alarm entry must have a unique alarm variable, sampling interval, sample type, rising threshold, or
falling threshold. You cannot create an alarm entry if all these parameters for the entry are the same as
an existing entry.
To trigger the event associated with an alarm condition, you must create the event with the rmon event
