Most of the notifications that appear in the Global Console are generated by underlying Managers. However, the Global Manager will generate a Session Disconnected notification when an underlying Manager disconnects from it. Also, if Business Impact Manager is deployed, the Global Manager will generate business impact notifications. Chapter 10, “Troubleshooting,” includes information about disconnect situations. The VMware Smart Assurance Business Impact Manager User Guide includes information about business impact notifications.

Detailed descriptions of diagnostic results for specific VMware Smart Assurance applications like VMware Smart Assurance IP Availability Manager, VMware Smart Assurance IP Performance Manager, and VMware Smart Assurance IP Discovery Manager are described in their respective user guides.
