-crtSets critical events that send alertsall, none, custom:te|vo|po|di|fa|cp|me|in|re|ot

Custom critical alert settings are specified using a pipe separated list of values of the form alertentries -crt custom:te|vo, where custom values are:

  • te: critical temperature threshold exceeded
  • vo: critical voltage threshold exceeded
  • po: critical power failure
  • di: hard disk drive failure
  • fa: fan failure
  • cp: microprocessor failure
  • me: memory failure
  • in: hardware incompatibility
  • re: power redundancy failure
  • ot: all other critical events
-crtenSend critical event alertsenabled, disabled
-wrnSets warning events that send alertsall, none, custom:rp|te|vo|po|fa|cp|me|ot

Custom warning alert settings are specified using a pipe separated list of values of the form alertentries -wrn custom:rp|te, where custom values are:

  • rp: power redundancy warning
  • te: warning temperature threshold exceeded
  • vo: warning voltage threshold exceeded
  • po: warning power threshold exceeded
  • fa: non-critical fan event
  • cp: microprocessor in degraded state
  • me: memory warning
  • ot: all other warning events
-wrnenSend warning event alertsenabled, disabled
-sysSets routine events that send alertsall, none, custom:lo|tio|ot|po|bf|til|pf|el|ne

Custom routine alert settings are specified using a pipe separated list of values of the form alertentries -sys custom:lo|tio, where custom values are:

  • lo: successful remote login
  • tio: operating system timeout
  • ot: all other informational and system events
  • po: system power on/off
  • bf: operating system boot failure
  • til: operating system loader watchdog timeout
