The problem severity indicator represents how severe a reported problem is. It does not indicate the overall component or chassis operational state. For example, a problem may be critical, but might not affect the current operational state of a component or chassis. See Operational State Indicators.

Web Client Icon Java Client Icon and Text Problem Severity Description
"" (Information) "" (OK) No problem reported. The component is operating normally.
"" (Warning) "" (Warning) The problem does not threaten system operation, but could worsen over time. Monitor the condition.
"" (Degraded) "" (Critical) Take immediate action to resolve the problem. The component or subsystem cannot continue to operate in this state.
Critical conditions are handled internally by components or subsystems, causing them to shut down.
"" (Severe) "" (Fatal) Take immediate action to resolve the problem and return the system to its normal operating state. The component or subsystem has failed.


The problem severity for the component is unknown. The most likely cause for an unknown state is incompatible software or firmware on the managed device. In rare cases the underlying software receives an unexpected status or information from a managed device, and does not know how to handle it.
