Set Event Filters

To set filters for searching events generated on one or more Viptela devices:

  1. Click the Filter drop-down menu.
  2. In the Severity drop-down, select the event severity level. Events generated by Viptela devices are collected by vManage NMS and classified as:
  • Critical—indicates that action needs to be taken immediately.
  • Major—indicates that the problem needs to be looked into but is not critical enough to bring down the network.
  • Minor—is informational only.

You can specify more than one severity level.

  1. In the Component drop-down, select the configuration component that caused the event. You can select more than one configuration component.
  2. In the System IP drop-down, select the system IP of the devices for which to view generated events.
  3. In the Event Name drop-down, select the event name for which to view generated events. You can select more than one event name.
  4. Click Search to search events that match the filter.

vManage NMS displays the events both in table and graphical format.

Export Event Data in CSV Format

To export data for all events to a file in CSV format, click the Export icon. This icon, which is a downward-pointing arrow, is located to the right of the Search box below the Events Histogram.

vManage NMS downloads all data from the events table to an Excel file in CSV format. The file is downloaded to your brower's default download location and is named viptela_download.csv.
