By default, the Global Manager subscribes to the VPN ImpactedByRemotePingFailure event for periodic remote pings but not to the following events for periodic remote pings:

  • RemotePing Down

  • RemotePing Impaired

    You can edit the dxa-mpls-vpn-ics-monitoring.conf file and enable the subscription of these two events. The line to be edited is:

    #sub RemotePing::.*::.*/e

    To enable the subscription of remote ping down and impaired events:

    1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the Global Manager installation area and type the following command to open the dxa-mpls-vpn-ics-monitoring.conf file:

                           sm_edit conf/ics/dxa-mpls-vpn-ics-monitoring.conf
    2. Find the following line in the file:

      #sub RemotePing::.*::.*/e 
    3. Uncomment the line by removing the # character.

    4. Save and close the file.

      The modified version of the dxa-mpls-vpn-ics-monitoring.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/ics directory.

    5. If the Global Manager was running before you edited the dxa-mpls-vpn-ics-monitoring.conf file, restart the Global Manager.
