Overview

By default, trap and syslog actions are held in the MSMQ until they are processed. It is possible for a bad rule to generate a large volume of trap or syslog actions such as emails. This article provides steps on how to prevent additional actions from being processed.  

Environment

Orion Platform 2015.1.3 and earlier

Steps

  1. Open the Orion Service Manager and stop the Trap and/or Syslog service.  
  2. Open the Trap or Syslog viewer, select View, and then click Alerts/Filter Rules.
  3. Correct or disable the rule that is generating the flood of actions.
  4. Navigate to the MSMQ, expand Private Queues, expand either the /collector/processingqueue/core.trap.messages queue or the /collector/processingqueue/core.syslog.messages queue.
  5. Right-click on Queue Messages, click All Tasks, and then click Purge.
  6. Start the Trap and/or Syslog service from the Orion Service Manager.  

 

Now that the rule which was generating a large volume of actions has been corrected or disabled, the issue should no longer be present.
