I am receiving the following event notifications for a single lun:

 

Storage: xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

Target: vcenter.vsphere.bo3.***.com

Event: StorageProvisioned Congestion - Storage Provisioned congestion on Storage "xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

 

Storage: xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

Target: vcenter.vsphere.bo3.***.com

Event: StorageAccess Congestion - Storage Access congestion on Storage "xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

 

Storage: xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

Target: vcenter.vsphere.bo3.***.com

Event: Storage Congestion - Critical Storage Provisioned congestion. Provision more Storage capacity to maintain current workload

 

Storage: xio.lun01.esxc02.pod01.dev.bo3

Target: vcenter.vsphere.bo3.***.com

Event: Storage Congestion - Critical Storage Access congestion. Provision more Storage capacity to maintain current workload

 

I understand that I have a storage congestion issue on this lun, but why am I getting four different notifications? What are the differences between these events and why would I get an email for one, but not the others?

 

Is there some documentation, such as a table, on every notification event type and what they mean? I couldn't find anything comprehensive in the VMTurbo Operations Manager 5.3 Users Guide.

 

Thanks.
