Event groups overview

Event groups are collections of individual events that are related symptoms of a single situation on your cluster. Event groups provide a single point of management for multiple event instances that are generated in response to a situation on your cluster.

For example, if a chassis fan fails in a node, OneFS might capture multiple events related both to the failed fan itself, and to exceeded temperature thresholds within the node. All events related to the fan will be represented in a single event group. Because there is a single point of contact, you do not need to manage numerous individual events. You can handle the situation as a single, coherent issue.

All management of events is performed at the event group level. You can mark an event group as resolved or ignored. You can also configure how and when alerts are distributed for an event group.
