Jalasoft.Xian.SmartManagementPacks.F5BigIp.RealMachineTotalPackets.2.1 (AggregateMonitor)

This monitor catches Xian events that notifies when the Real machine total packets if has changed its state.

Knowledge Base article:

Summary

Real machine total packets is over threshold.

The total number of real machine packets is above the maximum threshold configured in Xian Network Manager 2012.

Causes

Increase of network demand serviced by a real machine.

Resolutions

Evaluate the configuration of the real machine to ensure that it is allowing the crucial packets; if necessary, implement additional security appliances, or evaluate a redistribution of demand to reduce total traffic through real machine.

Additional

Monitors the real machine total packets.
