NIMSOFT PROBES DX Infrastructure Management

Issue/Introduction

The status bar of the Infrastructure Manager is blinking red.


 

 

Cause

It is related to 'hold events' functionality. The 'Hold events' functionality is where a lot of infrastructure events are generated.

Environment

Any UIM version

Resolution
