Determining issues in storage objects using events

Contributors maumita2020

When a storage object in your data center crosses a threshold, you get a notification about that event. Using this notification, you can analyze the issue and take corrective action by using the events APIs.

This workflow takes the example of a volume as the resource object. You can use the events APIs to retrieve the list of events related to a volume, analyze the critical issues for that volume, and then take corrective actions to rectify the issue.

  2. Query all the events for the volumes by using the following parameters in the /management-server/events API: "resource_type": "volume" "severity": "critical"
