Threshold Monitor overview

The threshold-monitor commands allow you to monitor CPU and memory usage of the system, interface and SFP environmental status, and security status and be alerted when configured thresholds are exceeded. These commands are configured in RBridge ID configuration mode to support fabric cluster and logical chassis cluster topologies.

In addition to the policy keywords (available for interface, SFP, and security monitoring), you can use thecustom keyword create your own custom policies that have non-default thresholds, and apply them by means of the apply operand. This allows you to toggle between default settings and saved custom configuration settings and to apply actions and thresholds separately. For example, you can choose to use default threshold settings together with a customized subset of available actions, or you can modify some of the threshold settings and use the default action settings. You can also pause monitoring and actions by means of the pause keyword.

For detailed information on the variables and keywords (operands) of the threshold-monitor series of commands, refer to the Network OS Command Reference.
