Viewing events and system details

The events and system APIs under the management-server category enable you to retrieve the events that are generated for the monitored clusters in your data center and view the instance details in your Active IQ Unified Manager environment respectively.

Viewing events

By using the /management-server/events API, you can query the events in you data center, including historical data. Use the inbuilt filters, such as name, impact level, impact area, severity, state, resource name and resource type, to view specific events. The resource type and area parameters return information about the storage object on which the event has occurred, and the impact area returns the information about the issue for which the event is raised, such as availability, capacity, configuration, security, protection and performance.

You can also use the event key to query the details of a specific event and run the next set of operations on the resources.
