VM Network IO Monitoring


Description: Event containing VM CPU metrics Source: All

Key Attributes:

Name Id Type Description
Event Type eventType string Event type set to PH_DEV_MON_SYS_PING_STAT


eventSeverity uint16 Set to 1. In general, a number between 0 (lowest severity) and 10 (highest severity)



eventSeverityCat string Set to Low. IN general, takes the values Low, Medium and High. Event Severities 0-4 are mapped to Low, 5-8 are mapped to Medium and 9-10 are mapped to High



phRecvTime Date Time at which AccelOps generated this event
Reporting IP reptDevIpAddr Date IP address of device reporting this event. In this case set to the device reporting the utilization (same as

Host name attribute)

Relaying IP relayDevIpAddr Date IP address of device relaying this event from the source to AccelOps. In general it could be a syslog-ng IP address but in this, since AccelOps talks to the device directly, Relaying IP is set to AccelOps IP Address.
Raw Event


rawEventMsg string Raw event containing all attributes in comma separated “[Attribute] = value” format.
Host name hostName string Host name (as in AccelOps CMDB) of the device whose CPU utilization is being reported
Host IP


hostIpAddr IP Access IP (as in AccelOps CMDB) of the device whose CPU utilization is being reported
phyMachName string
phyMachIpAddr IP
vSwitch string
intfName string
sentPkts uint32 Sent Packets
recvPkts uint32 Received Packets
sentBytes uint32 Sent Bytes
recvBytes uint32 Received Bytes
Poll Interval pollIntv uint32 Polling interval in seconds
