    Alarm Suppression using Event Correlation


      Good day,


      Does Solarwinds perform Root Cause Analysis using Event Correlation that suppresses alerts to downstream devices?

      If a switch/router goes down, we currently receive alerts for ALL downstream discovered devices. This is highly irritating, getting 20 emails for all devices the poller cannot see instead of just one. I only want an alert for the device or interface that is causing the outage, not the entire site.

      The downstream devices are more than likely still operational, just cannot be seen by the poller.


      What needs to be done for RCA to happen for Alarm Suppression as indicated above?
