Event and Fault Management Tools

The goal of event and fault management is to determine if there are issues that need attention, to generate faults where they do, and to present these faults to the correct people to ensure they get fixed in priority order. Your network should generate as few faults as possible while still covering all issues that need attention. The steps to do this are as follows:

  • Configuring event generation
  • Event collection
  • Event correlation
  • Fault management

Figure 9-1 shows how each of these steps interrelate and how they must interoperate with the rest of your NMS tools.

Configuring Event Generation

Configuring event generation assists with the configuration of thresholds and event generation for network devices.
