Set event age for events

You can set the event age option to specify the time interval (in seconds). Citrix ADM monitors the appliances until the set duration and generates an event only if the event age exceeds the set duration.


The minimum value for the event age is 60 seconds. If you keep the Event Age field blank, the event rule is applied immediately after the event is occurred.

For example, consider that you want to manage various ADC appliances and get notified by email when any of your virtual servers goes down for 60 seconds or longer. You can create an event rule with the necessary filters and set the rule’s event age to 60 seconds. Then, whenever a virtual server remains down for 60 or more seconds, you 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.

    Ensure to set all the co-related traps in the Category section and also set the respective severity in the Severity section when you set event age. In the preceding example, select the entityup, entitydown, and entityofs traps.
