Platform events and logs

Any change in platform level attributes, such as CPU, memory, or storage in the system is logged as an event and displayed on the Citrix SD-WAN Orchestrator for On-premises.

For example, if CPU usage exceeds the set limit, a platform event is logged and an alarm is triggered. The alarm comes up in the Notifications bar. The notification gets cleared if the CPU usage gets decreased. The Platform Events & Logs page maintains the history of all platform related alarms that were triggered. If the CPU usage decreases, the alarm status becomes INACTIVE. If it is still above the limits, the alarm status remains ACTIVE.

To view the platform events, navigate to Infrastructure > Orchestrator Diagnostics > Platform Events & Logs.

The following details are displayed for logged platform events:

  • Description: The description of the platform event.
  • Alarm Status: The status of the alarm. If the platform attribute exceeds the set limit, then the status is ACTIVE. If the platform level attribute subsides to a value within the set limit, then alarm status is INACTIVE.
  • Resource: The platform level attribute – CPU, Memory, or Storage.
  • Current Value: The latest value of the logged platform attribute.
  • Created At: The time when the platform event occurred.
