What Active IQ platform events are

Contributors netapp-manini

Unified Manager can display events that have been discovered by the Active IQ platform. These events are created by running a set of rules against AutoSupport messages generated from all storage systems being monitored by Unified Manager.

Unified Manager checks for a new rules file automatically and only downloads a new file when there are newer rules. In sites with no external network access, you need to upload the rules manually from Storage Management > Event Setup > Upload Rules.

These Active IQ events do not overlap with existing Unified Manager events, and they identify incidents or risks concerning system configuration, cabling, best practice, and availability issues.
