Event Correlation of Alarms

Let us learn about the event correlation of alarms.
The event engine performs multiple functions such as alarm correlation, suppression, and escalation depending on the network conditions and the administrator configured event policy rules. This improves the operational efficiency of the app-fabric by automatically correlating alarms into an event and the comprehensive event framework control granted by event policies.
The controller analyzes the incoming alarms from the ION devices to determine if they are related and then it aggregates the alarms into a single alarm in real time. For example, if the controller receives multiple VPN down alarms, the controller analyzes the alarm in real time, determines if they are related, and generates a single Secure Fabric Link alarm for the event, while suppressing the original list of alarms.
