Hello Experts,

I have a network management application and one if its features is sound alerts when events occur.

I was wondering if its possble to artificially generate events without shutting down interfaces etc... I would like generate alerts on switches and routers as I mentioned without shutting down interfaces of misconfiguring the configuration.

Is that possible?

Cheers

Carlton

Do you really want to generate an alert message or just test the functionality. You could just turn up the logging level to informational. The device then should generate lots of events.

Hi Ernie,

Thanks for responding. I would like to test the functionality of my application. For example, I would like to test an alert when a syslog event occurs for say %BGP-5-Adjacency. That is just an example, as it's easy to generate a %bgp-5-adjacency syslog message, but you get my drift....

Cheers
