Excluding events

If there are specific events that are of no interest to you, you can exclude the events from all pages on which events are displayed. Excluded events are still in the log but are hidden from all pages on which events are displayed.

About this task

Excluded events are hidden for all users, not just the user that set the configuration.

You can place devices in maintenance mode, so that all events and alerts for those devices are excluded (see Placing devices in maintenance mode).

Restriction: Only users with administrative authority can exclude or restore events.


Complete the following steps to exclude events from the event logs.

  1. From the Lenovo XClarity Administrator menu bar, click Monitoring > Event Logs, and click the Event Log tab. The Event Logs is displayed.
  2. Select the events to be excluded, and click the Exclude events icon (Selected events icon). The Exclude Events dialog is displayed.
  3. Select one of the following options:
    • Exclude selected events from all systems. Excludes the selected events from all managed devices.
    • Exclude events only from systems in the scope of the instance selected. Excludes the selected events from managed devices to which the selected events apply.
  4. Click Save.

After you finish

When you exclude events, Lenovo XClarity Administrator creates exclusion rules based on information that you provide.
