Events & Alarms

NVIDIA UFM-SDN Appliance User Manual v4.11.1

All information provided in a tabular format in UFM web UI can be exported into a CSV file.

UFM allows you to identify any problem including ports and device connectivity using events and alarms. Problems can be detected both prior to running applications and during standard operation.

Events trigger alarms (except for "normal" events. i.e., Info events) when they exceed a predefined threshold. Events and alarms can be configured under Events Policy tab under Settings window. For more information, refer to Events Policy Tab.



Users can enable the events persistency mechanism from the gv.cfg. This allows the user to see the events in the case of restarting the UFM or in HA mode.


Alternatively you can run the following commands:

  • ufm events persistency enable

  • ufm events max-restored

The persistency is deactivated by default and can be enabled by the following controlled parameters in the config file:

  • max_restored_events = 50 # – will determine the number of events to restore

  • events_persistency_enabled = true # – will set to true for the feature to work
