When you are interpreting notifications, you should be aware of the different severity levels for notifications, and important attributes such as Source, IsRoot, and Impact that appear as columns in your console. This section also explains how to obtain more information about notification properties.

Notification information is displayed in:

  • The Notification Log Console or view (including a view for a selected summary), when events occur.

  • The Events tab of the Topology Browser for the object where the problem or event occurs.

  • The Notification Properties view. “Displaying notification properties” on page 62 contains additional information.

  • Maps where notifications affect the state of icons. “Adjusting the appearance of a map” on page 94 contains additional information.

  • Status Table Console, for status of the underlying elements that affect the operation of business entities. Chapter 7, “Examining Status Tables,” contains additional information.
