Event configuration properties

The following table lists event configuration properties.

Event configuration properties
Property Name Property Type Description
zEventAction string Specifies the database table in which an event will be stored. Possible values are: status, history and drop. Default is status, meaning the event will be an “active” event. History sends the event directly to the history table. Drop tells the system to discard the event.
zEventClearClasses lines Lists classes that a clear event should clear (in addition to its own class).
zEventMaxTransformFails int After the specified number of failures, disable bad transforms from executing. Default is 10.
zEventSeverity int Overrides the severity value of events from this class. Possible values are 5-Critical, 4-Error, 3-Warning, 2-Info, 1-Debug, 0-Clear, and -1-Default.
zFlappingIntervalSeconds int Defines the time interval to check for event flapping (changing severity level repeatedly). Default value is 3600 seconds.
zFlappingSeverity int Drop-down list to set the severity to check for event flapping. If the severity level on an event changes from this value a certain number of times (zFlappingThreshold) within a certain time range (zFlappingIntervalSeconds) then an event flapping event is generated. Possible values include: 5-Critical, 4-Error, 3-Warning, 2-Info, 1-Debug, and 0-Clear.
zFlappingThreshold int Number of times an event severity must flap within an interval. One of the parameters to define in order to generate event flapping events.
