What happens when an event is received

When Unified Manager receives an event, it is displayed in the Dashboards/Overview page, in the Summary and Explorer tabs of the Performance/Cluster page, in the Events inventory page, and in the object-specific inventory page (for example, the Health/Volumes inventory page).

When Unified Manager detects multiple continuous occurrences of the same event condition for the same cluster component, it treats all occurrences as a single event, not as separate events. The duration of the event is incremented to indicate that the event is still active.

Depending on how you configure settings in the Configuration/Alerting page, you can notify other users about these events. The alert causes the following actions to be initiated:

This workflow is shown in the following diagram.
