Schedule an event filter

After creating a filter for your rule, if you do not want the NetScaler Console 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 Console 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 Console:

  1. In the NetScaler Console, navigate to Infrastructure > 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 check box to enable the scheduled event rule.

    • Recurrence - Interval at which to schedule the rule. Select either a specific day of the week or a specific date in a month.

    • Days: Select the day of the week to run the rule. You can select multiple days.

    • Dates: Type in the dates. You can type multiple dates as comma-separated values.

    • Scheduled Time Interval (Hours) – Hours, at which to schedule the rule (use the 24-hour format).

  4. Click Schedule.
