    VM Data collection and Alerts

    Chuck16

      Does anyone know of a way to change the setting as to when you will get alerts/warning in STM concerning the VM environement? Specifically I would like to change STM to stop alerts/warning when a ESX host is set into "Maintenance Mode"

          Hi Chuck16,

           

          The only way I could see you disabling alerts from that particular ESX host is by disabling traps on the STM agent monitoring that host. The side effect of this change would be that if the agent was monitoring more than just that host that was in maintenance mode, you would also not receive traps from those other hosts anymore either. You could "rebalance" which agents were monitoring which hosts or setup a 1-to-1 host/agent configuration to get around that problem.

              I thought of that but then it becomes a nightmare to manage the alert environment because you would have to go in and re-enable alerts when the server is removed from maintenance mode (which means you trust your server group to communicate this as well...lol)
