  • 1.  questions for rpm and event policy timing

    Posted 04-19-2021 14:44
    I have the following configuration in the lab
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test probe-type icmp-ping
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test target address 10.146.40.38
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test probe-count 3
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test probe-interval 2
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test test-interval 3
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test source-address 10.146.40.39
    set services rpm probe jncie-probe test jncie-test thresholds successive-loss 3
    
    set event-options policy jncie-event events ping_test_failed
    set event-options policy jncie-event within 20 trigger on
    set event-options policy jncie-event within 20 trigger 3
    set event-options policy jncie-event within 25 trigger until
    set event-options policy jncie-event within 25 trigger 4
    set event-options policy jncie-event then change-configuration commands "set system ntp server 10.10.10.99"
    set event-options policy jncie-event then change-configuration commit-options log "event triggered"​

    In my understanding, rpm would generate a log every 18s.  3 (probe-count) X 2 (probe-interval) X 3 (test-interval) = 18s
    But the log shows every 9s.

    Apr 19 03:06:11.438 2021  QGX-39 rmopd[6830]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = jncie-probe, pingCtlTestName = jncie-test
    Apr 19 03:06:20.454 2021  QGX-39 rmopd[6830]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = jncie-probe, pingCtlTestName = jncie-test
    Apr 19 03:06:29.468 2021  QGX-39 rmopd[6830]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = jncie-probe, pingCtlTestName = jncie-test

    In the event policy, I expected to see no more command executed when it saw a fourth alert. But I saw the command executed continuously.

    Apr 19 02:36:17.763 2021  QGX-39 file[33284]: UI_COMMIT: User 'root' requested 'commit' operation (comment: event triggered)
    Apr 19 02:36:26.728 2021  QGX-39 file[33303]: UI_COMMIT: User 'root' requested 'commit' operation (comment: event triggered)
    Apr 19 02:36:35.787 2021  QGX-39 file[33322]: UI_COMMIT: User 'root' requested 'commit' operation (comment: event triggered)

    also every 9 seconds.

    What I missed here ?

    thanks in advanced !!

    I watched a little closely, it seems to me every cycle of probe 3 X 2 with successive loss generates a log entry.
    I adjusted the timing the event policy to stop the duplicated command executions.

    thanks a lot !!
