Event information

There is one event view for each monitor type. The view provides information about events generated for all monitor instances of a monitor type. Event dataviews are named as <tablename prefix>_AL_VIEW.

Each of these event dataviews contains the following information:

Event information 

Column

Description

MOINSTID

Monitor instance ID. This is a unique number generated for each instance. The value is assigned by Infrastructure Management system during monitor creation. This value is internal and fixed. This number identifies all relevant data for each instance.

EVENTID

Internal ID for this event

SEVERITY

This is an integer defined as follows:

  • 4 = CRITICAL
  • 3 = MAJOR
  • 2 = MINOR
  • 1 = ABNORMAL
  • 0 = CLOSED

DESCRIPTION

Reason for the event

ASSIGNEDTO

Assigned person's name

THRESHTYPE

This is an integer defined as follows:156 > Crossed absolute threshold. Applicable to all instances of specified monitor type157 > Crossed Signature threshold. Applicable to all instances of specified monitor type> Crossed absolute threshold. Applicable to a specific monitor instance162 > Crossed signature threshold. Applicable to a specific monitor instance

TIMERECORDED

UNIX time stamp. Time when this attribute value crossed the threshold the first time

CLOSED_TIME

UNIX time when the event was closed

ENDTIME

Time when the state of the event record changes. Time recorded here is typically the time of the next event record that has the same event ID, or time when the event was closed. The ENDTIME column is used in cases where the event changes severity while it is still open. In that case, ENDTIME for the earlier records contains the start time of the next record - each severity change creates a new event record.

EVENT_ID

Internal ID of the associated event. Every alarm is associated with an event

ATTRID

Internal ID of the attribute for which this event is created

LASTTIME

UNIX time when the event was created

    Can we choose what attributes of events needs to in this view ? For example we are interested in specific slots. We are interested in slots (some are inhouse slots mc_host mc_host_address severity msg etc etc...

    can we choose which slots can be in it.

      Hi Shabeer, as per our SME, we cannot change the slots in event views. These views are having predefined schema and can’t be changed.
