Event details page


From the Event details page, you can view the details of a selected event, such as the event severity, impact level, impact area, and event source. You can also view additional information about possible remediations to resolve the issue.

  • Event Name

    The name of the event and the time the event was last seen.

    For non-performance events, while the event is in the New or Acknowledged state the last seen information is not known and is therefore hidden.

  • Event Description

    A brief description of the event.

    In some cases a reason for the event being triggered is provided in the event description.

  • Component in Contention

    For dynamic performance events, this section displays icons that represent the logical and physical components of the cluster. If a component is in contention, its icon is circled and highlighted red.

    See Cluster components and why they can be in contention for a description of the components that are displayed here.

The Event Information, System Diagnosis, and Suggested Actions sections are described in other topics.
