System Monitor overview

System Monitor provides customizable monitoring thresholds, which allow you to monitor the health of each component of a switch. Whenever a switch component exceeds a configured threshold, System Monitor automatically provides notification by means of e-mail or RASLog messages, depending on the configuration.

Because of platform-specific values that vary from platform to platform, it was previously not possible to configure platform-specific thresholds through a global CLI command. In Network OS 4.0.0 and later, it is possible to monitor individual switches in a logical chassis cluster or fabric cluster. This is done in RBridge ID configuration mode, by addressing the RBridge ID of the selected switch.

Threshold and notification configuration procedures are described in the following sections.
