Opened: Mar 26, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Frequent syncs occurring within an ASM device group.

Impact

Syncs appear in the logs (no actual performance degradation).

Conditions

Several (updating) suggestions are marked 'ignored'.

Workaround

-- Remove the Ignored Suggestions. (Note: These might be re-added and you must refrain from clicking the Ignore button). -- Remove the Ignored Suggestions and uncheck the Learn flag for the violation that causes it. (Note: The impact is that the system does not learn this violation anymore, so any future suggestions to amend the policy for that violation will not be created.)

Fix Information

Policy Builder (PB) no longer updates Ignored Suggestions, so unnecessary sync operations no longer occur.

Behavior Change
