The Local Response Agent Group provides information about various attributes of your system’s local response agent (LRA). The LRA allows systems managers to predetermine how a system running the server administrator responds to a particular event type, such as the loss of redundancy in a specific component or the elevation of temperature in a chassis. Systems managers can configure the LRA to respond to an event type with a specific action. When the condition of the critical component worsens, the systems manager can escalate the response to make it more obvious to the operator.
For example, when a voltage probe on a monitored machine reaches a warning condition, the systems manager may want to notify the operator by causing the machine to beep. When the voltage probe reaches failure, the systems manager might want to have the system that has a failing component send a broadcast message to the management system and power off the troubled system.
