I started noticing the system status light going from solid blue to
blinking orange recently, correlating with some filesystem corruption.
After upgrading the firmware on my poweredge 2600 and fixing the fs, the
light went back to blue. Now, it's blinking orange again. I installed
dellomsa_4.71-3653_i386.deb, dellomsa-drivers_4.71-3653_i386.deb, and
all the snmp supporting packages. I even went through all of the
instructions to use openNMS from here:
Unfortunately, openNMS doesn't seem to be reporting anything about the
dell hardware, just running daemons.
The best I can get so far is this message in syslog from snmptrapd,
telling me the ESM log is almost full:
Mar 7 17:20:43 lyra snmptrapd: 192.168.0.18: Enterprise Specific
Trap (1553) Uptime: 0:00:33.32, enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.1.0 =
"lyra", enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.2.0 = OID:
enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.3.0 = "Log size is near or at capacity
.Log type: ESM", enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.4.0 = 4,
enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.5.0 = 3,
enterprises.674.10892.1.5000.10.6.0 = ""
It's coming up in a non snmp way here:
Mar 7 17:20:43 lyra Server Administrator: EventID: 1553 Log size is
near or at capacity Log type: ESM
Can anyone point me in the right direction here so I can read this log
and empty it out?
Thanks for your time,
