Set event age for events

You can set the Event Age option to specify the time interval (in seconds) after which Citrix Application Delivery Management (Citrix ADM) refreshes an event rule.

For example, if you use Citrix ADM to monitor and manage various ADC appliances, and you want to be notified by email every time any of your virtual servers goes down for 15 seconds or longer, you can create an event rule with the necessary filters and set the rule’s event age to 15 seconds. Then, every time a virtual server remains down for 15 or more seconds, you will receive an email notification with details such as entity name, status change, and time.

To set event age in Citrix ADM:

  1. In Citrix ADM, navigate to Networks > Events > Rules, and click Add.

  2. On the Create Rule page, set the rule parameters.

  3. Specify the event age in seconds.
