Exceptions generated by IP Performance Manager lists the performance exceptions, the faults that trigger them, and the performance thresholds associated with each fault. The table also identifies the managed objects (systems, Chassis, and VLANs) for which the exceptions are generated as well as the components of the managed objects that can be at fault.

Note:

Thresholds can be set in the Polling and Thresholds tab in Domain Manager Administration Console. The chapter “Configuring Groups and Settings in the Polling and Thresholds Console” in VMware Smart Assurance IP Management Suite Version 8.1 Service Pack 1 Configuration Guide provides more information on how to set thresholds.
