Configures a system wide events handling policy

Event system policies enable administrators to create notification mechanisms using one, some, or all of the SNMP, syslog, controller forwarding, or email notification options available to the controller or service platform. Each listed event can have customized notification settings defined and saved as part of an event policy. Thus, policies can be configured and administrated in respect to specific sets of client association, authentication or encryption, and performance events. Once policies are defined, they can be mapped to device profiles strategically as the likelihood of an event applies to particular devices.

To view an existing event system policy configuration details, use the show > event-system-policy command.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
