IP Performance Manager detects the following faults for ports, interfaces, and subinterfaces:

  • HighBroadcastRate

  • HighDiscardRate

  • HighQueueDropRate

  • HighCollisionRate

  • HighUtilization

  • HighErrorRate


    To enable subinterface performance analysis, see the Generic Interface/Port Performance setting description or the Ethernet Interface/Port Performance setting description in Chapter 7, Customizing Polled Data Thresholds, in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Management Suite Configuration Guide.

    When any of these faults occur, IP Performance Manager generates the appropriate system-level exception notification.
