This section describes the procedure of suppressing SoftwareElement events from the subscription to Service Assurance Manager.

The dxa-sam-from-acm.conf file contains code that subscribes Service Assurance Manager for various problems and events. The file subscribes Service Assurance Manager to SoftwareElement events by default.

If you do not want to subscribe to events during the initial deployment of Application Connectivity Monitor, you can suppress SoftwareElement events from being subscribed to Service Assurance Manager:


  1. Using the sm_edit utility, insert a # character at the beginning of each line of subscription code.
    An example of the code follows:
    #The following subscribes to all for the given Class,
    Instance, Event :
    #p=problems, a=aggregates, e=raw events
  2. Save the file.
  3. Restart the Service Assurance Manager.
