    question about EVENTS

    lchance

      can someone explain to me the importance of these events (Volume Index)? especially when i see their values either go higher or go lower like these examples shown below.


      what should i be concerned about when i see these?


      thanks.

      Physical Memory- Volume Index changed from 7 to 8

          The index for volumes and interfaces is just an snmp bookkeeping detail. It might mean that a volume was added or removed from the device, or it might mean nothing.

              Would this mean then that the server is perhaps part of a cluster and when it fails over orion recognises that new volumes are now assigned to this server?

              But I see these types of messages up to 4/5 times a day and I know the cluster is not failing over.....

              Anyone have any other ideas?

              with the massive netapp storage I have I'm getting literally thousands of these Volume Index Changed messages all day long...  this really causes information overflow in the events list masking other information you might want to see... trying to decide how to deal with this:

              Note servername and volume names have been removed.  This is such a small sample of how much this happens all day long and fills the database which it's handling but geesh this is insane!!!

               

              See Event Overload - Volume index changed from x to x on servers with giant netapp storage volumes masking events that make sense to see through all this...  I created a new question for this topic.
