Usage Guidelines

This command enables anomaly notification. When enabled, any packet failed to pass enabled protocol checking is sent to XOS Host CPU and notifies the user. There are three different types of notifications:
  • log: The anomaly events are logged into EMS log.
  • snmp: The anomaly events generate SNMP traps.
  • cache: The most recent and unique anomaly events are stored in memory for review and investigation.

When disabled, the switch drops all violating packets silently.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
