Troubleshooting Using Custom Events

You can create custom events to define failure scenario and use them to generate troubleshoot switch issues.

For example, you can create a "system is unusable" event with the following settings. Based on this event definition and configuration, if any switch sends this message thrice in one hour, the controller triggers a Custom Event. You can view the "system unavailable" event from the Switch Custom Events page. For more information on custom events, see Creating Custom Events for ICX Switches
