IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 220.127.116.11
Trap and alert management
Use the Trap and alert management page to define and modify traps and alerts that monitor server health and determine problems with applications, and to view the history of triggered traps and alerts.
To access trap and alert management, from the top navigation, click...
Problem Determination > Trap & Alert Management
You can also access this page from the toolbox icon on the Server Activity Display page.
Use trap and alert management to monitor server health and determine problems with applications. Prevent disruptions in service by receiving alerts before problems arise. Gather data that helps you pinpoint the root cause of difficult-to-reproduce problems.
The page shows a table of active traps and another table of defined trap profiles. (You can activate a trap based on a trap profile).
For each active trap the table shows:
- The name of the trap.
- The name of the server that the trap applies to. If the trap applies to multiple servers, click + to view the list.
- The number of minutes for which the trap is suppressed before triggering, if applicable. This avoids triggering a trap on a short load spike.
- The duration of the trap; the trap is deactivated when this duration expires. Traps can also have an infinite duration.
- Time left until the duration expires (N/A if the duration is infinite).
- The time when this trap was activated.
- The user who has activated the trap.
- A Deactivate button.
To deactivate a trap, click the Deactivate button.
For each trap profile the table shows:
- The name of the trap profile.
- The description.
- The user who has created the profile.
- Activate, Modify, Modify, and Delete buttons.
To activate a trap based on the profile, click the Activate button.
To modify a trap profile, click the Modify button.
To create a trap profile as a copy of an existing profile, click the Duplicate button.
To delete a trap profile, click the Delete button.
