Configure RMON Alarm Group parameters to check icmpInEchos, with a polling interval of
60, a rising limit of 200, and a rising event index of 5. This configuration creates an RMON
alarm that checks icmpInEchos on the switch once every minute. If the statistic exceeds 200
within a 60 second interval, an alarm is generated that triggers event index 5.
Apply, verify, and save the configuration.
RMON group 9—events
The RMON Event group allows you to define events that are triggered by alarms. An event can be a log
message, an SNMP trap message, or both.
When an alarm is generated, it triggers a corresponding event notification. Use the /cfg/rmon/alarm
x/revtidx and /fevtidx commands to correlate an event index to an alarm.
RMON events use SNMP and syslogs to send notifications. Therefore, an SNMP trap host must be
configured for trap event notification to work properly.
RMON uses a SYSLOG host to send syslog messages. Therefore, an existing SYSLOG host
(/cfg/sys/syslog) must be configured for event log notification to work properly. Each log event
generates a SYSLOG of type RMON that corresponds to the event.
