Showing Event Notification Parameters

The svcs -n command displays the FMA events notification parameters, system wide SMF state transition notification parameters, and service instance state transition notification parameters. See “Notification Parameters” in the smf(7) man page for information about these parameters.

$ svcs -n
Notification parameters for FMA Events
    Event: problem-diagnosed
        Notification Type: smtp
            Active: true
            reply-to: root@localhost
            to: root@localhost

        Notification Type: snmp
            Active: true

        Notification Type: syslog
            Active: true

    Event: problem-repaired
        Notification Type: snmp
            Active: true

    Event: problem-resolved
        Notification Type: snmp
            Active: true

System wide notification parameters:
svc:/system/svc/global:default:
    Event: to-maintenance
        Notification Type: smtp
            Active: true
            to: sysadmins@example.com

svc:/application/pkg/mirror:default:
    Event: to-maintenance
        Notification Type: smtp
            Active: true
            to: installteam@example.com

Three FMA events are shown: problem-diagnosed, problem-repaired, and problem-resolved. Notification parameters can also be configured for a fourth event: problem-updated.

For the system wide state transition notification setting, the service that stores these global settings is also listed. This system wide setting is a custom setting. System wide, or global, values apply to all service instances that do not have custom values set.

The last setting shown is a custom setting for a particular service instance.

Use the svccfg listnotify command to show notification parameters for only the specified event. For state transition events, use the -g option to show global settings. The output also shows the source of the notification parameter values.

$ svccfg listnotify problem-resolved
    Event: problem-resolved (source: svc:/system/fm/notify-params:default)
        Notification Type: snmp
            Active: true
$ svccfg listnotify -g to-maintenance
    Event: to-maintenance (source: svc:/system/svc/global:default)
        Notification Type: smtp
            Active: true
            to: sysadmins@example.com
$ svccfg -s pkg/mirror listnotify to-maintenance
    Event: to-maintenance (source: svc:/application/pkg/mirror)
        Notification Type: smtp
            Active: true
            to: installteam@example.com
