Network Protocol Manager for OSPF diagnoses root-cause problems and detects (computes) events from status updates acquired in the following ways:
By subscribing to OSPF-relevant status updates from IP Availability Manager
By using SNMP polling to gather status information from the OSPF-enabled devices
By extracting status information from SNMP traps that are issued by the OSPF-enabled devices
By extracting status information from syslog messages that are issued by the OSPF-enabled devices
Network Protocol Manager for OSPF correlates these events to diagnose root-cause problems.Note:
Events used as symptoms to diagnose a root-cause problem can also be perceived as impacts that are caused by the problem.
