The event list page is a list of events that meet common criteria. For example, if you open an event list from the events list page by Event Type, you can view systems that have generated the same events.
The event list page is divided into the following sections:
From this page, you can clear, delete, and assign events, enter comments on the event, and view printable reports.
Event Status Legend
The legend shows how many events in the view are Critical, Major, Minor, Normal, and Informational. Refer to Event Lists Page - Event Severity Types for more information on event status types.
The event list can be displayed by any of the following:
By clicking an event list from the System Lists region
By clicking an event status icon in the banner area
By clicking the All Events Associated with this System link from the System Page
By clicking a private event list under My Favorites
By clicking a hyperlink in the Uncleared Events section on the Status Overview page
Event lists are filtered based on authorizations. Users can only view events on systems for which they have the appropriate authorization. Refer to Administering the Software - Users and Authorizations for more information.
Event List Columns
To position columns, drag the column header to a new position, to sort list results by a particular column, click the column header for ascending or descending order. Place your cursor over a column name for a brief description of the column.
Select the checkbox in this column to select an event. You can select more than one event. Select the checkbox in the column heading to select or deselect all displayed events.
This column displays whether the event is in the cleared or uncleared state. Events start in the uncleared state. A Cleared state means the user is no longer interested in this event. Event states also include In Progress, indicating not all the data for the event has been logged. Events in an In Progress state cannot be removed or cleared. A restart of the CMS moves any pending state events to uncleared.
This column displays the event status icon to indicate the severity of a problem represented by the event. Refer to Event Lists Page - Event Severity Types for more information.
This column displays the type of an event. Some examples are SNMP traps, login failures, or the replicate agent settings tool event type. Select an event type from the list to view the Event Details section. The information displayed varies depending on the event. If you cannot see the entire event type in the column, place your cursor over a this field, and a pop-up window is displayed that shows the entire event type. Refer to Event Lists Page - Event Details Section for information on the Event Details section.
This column displays the system name on which the event occurred. Clicking a link in this column displays the System Page.
When an event occurs that affects an entire rack or enclosure, it is possible for several systems in that rack or enclosure to generate a trap for that event. These container traps are filtered such that only one event is logged per rack or enclosure trap. Also, even though the source of the trap is a blade server or management processor, HP Systems Insight Manager sets the Event Source and Associated System for the logged event to the rack or enclosure, as appropriate. Refer to System Lists Page - About Racks and Enclosures for more information on racks and enclosures.
This column displays the time stamp when the CMS received this event, including the date and time. If the client is in a different time zone than the event time (CMS time), the event time is converted to the client time zone.
To assign responsibility for an event to a user, click [Assign to] at the bottom of the page for the event you want to modify. The Assign to section appears, where you select to assign a new assignee or use an existing assignee. If you select to use an existing assignee, you can only select one user name from the list. This name does not have to be a user with privileges on the system or a name that can be used to log in to the central management server. This field is free form text. Refer to Event Lists Page - Assigning Events to Users for more information on assigning an event to a user.
This column either displays the comments for this event or is blank if no comments have been entered. Comments are truncated in the column itself. Click the event type to view the entire comment if needed, or place your cursor over a comment field, and a pop-up window displays that shows the entire comment. Refer to Event Lists Page - Entering Comments on Events for adding comments.
Event Management Buttons
Five buttons at the bottom of the event list page are available to users with full configuration rights only. These buttons may not appear depending on where you access this page from. For example, when creating a task and selecting targets, there are no buttons displayed, only the table or system names.
