Schedule an event filter

May 24, 2018

After creating a filter for your rule, if you do not want the NetScaler MAS server to send a notification every time the event generated satisfies the filter criteria, you can schedule the filter to trigger only at specific time intervals such as daily, weekly, or monthly.

For example, if you have scheduled a system maintenance activity for different applications on your instances at different times, the instances might generate multiple alarms.

If you have configured a filter for these alarms and enabled email notifications for these filters, the server sends a large number of email notifications when NetScaler MAS receives these traps. If you want the server to send these email notifications during a specific time period only, you can do so by scheduling a filter.

To schedule a filter using NetScaler MAS

  1. In the NetScaler MAS, navigate to Networks > Events > Rules.
  2. Select the rule you want to schedule a filter for, and click View Schedule.
  3. On the Scheduled Rule page, click Schedule and specify the following parameters:
    • Enable Rule – Select this checkbox to enable the scheduled event rule.
    • Recurrence - Interval at which to schedule the rule.
    • Scheduled Time Interval (Hours) – Hour(s), at which to schedule the rule (use the 24 hour format).
  4. Click Schedule.
