Event generation

LSF detects events occurring during the operation of LSF daemons. LSF provides a program which translates LSF events into SNMP traps. You can also write your own program that runs on the master host to interpret and respond to LSF events in other ways. For example, your program could:
  • Page the system administrator

  • Send email to all users

  • Integrate with your existing network management software to validate and correct the problem

On Windows, use the Windows Event Viewer to view LSF events.

SNMP trap program

If you use the LSF SNMP trap program as the event handler, see the SNMP documentation for instructions on how to enable event generation.
