Performance Management Events raised on devices for reduced polling due to timeouts.
The same Events can also be seen in Spectrum as Alarms.
In both instances the Event Message states:
These Events are synchronized to Spectrum via the integration between products.
Devices polled via Performance Management Data Aggregator are failing to respond to the poll requests due to timeouts.
All supported Performance Management releases
The correct solution to these events is to resolve the problem causing the device to time out during the poll requests. The steps to determine and set the correct polling configuration for devices showing these Events is found in the Polling Sensitive and Critical Devices Without a Performance Impact section of the documentation.
An alternative though less desirable solution is to disable the Events from being raised. This can be done following the below steps. Pay close attention to the limitations noted in the Additional Information below before disabling these Events. They are important and indicative of a problem in the network.

Find Event with Name:
Note the ID of that rule, found above the Name value. Run a new GET against the URL:
In a lab the following is an example of the default Event Rule at issue.
We need to edit the <Enabled> value from true to false to disable it. We do that by:
Once completed no new instances of this Event will be raised in PM again, thus will not be sent to Spectrum for Alarm raise.
