Event

Description

Unresponsive

Indicates that the management agent is not responding to SNMP requests but that the system hosting the management agent is responding to ICMP and ICMPv6 pings.

RepeatedRestarts

Indicates that IP Availability Manager has received an abnormal number of Restart traps from the management agent within a short period of time. This event is used to diagnose system Unstable problems.

The RestartTrapThreshold and the RestartTrapWindow parameters in the Connectivity setting for the "System Resources Groups" threshold group control the analysis for a system unstable condition.
