Configuring RMON alarm settings

To configure RMON alarms and events, perform the following steps from privileged EXEC mode.

  1. Enter the configure terminal command to access global configuration mode.
    switch# configure terminal
  2. Configure the RMON alarms.

    Example of an alarm that tests every sample for a rising threshold

    switch(config)# rmon alarm 5 1.3.6.1.2.1.16.1.1.1.5.65535 interval 30 
                             absolute rising-threshold 95 event 27 owner john_smith 

    Example of an alarm that tests the delta between samples for a falling threshold

    switch(config)# rmon alarm 5 1.3.6.1.2.1.16.1.1.1.5.65535 interval 10 delta	
                             falling-threshold 65 event 42 owner john_smith
  3. Return to privileged EXEC mode.
    switch(config)# end
  4. Save the running-config file to the startup-config file.
    switch# copy running-config startup-config
  5. To view configured alarms, use the show running-config rmon alarm command.
