Faking vCenter alarms

Larger environments tend to integrate their monitoring and ticketing systems. Some also add automated workflows based on alarms. The problem when setting up these workflows is how do you test the workflow is triggered based on specific alarms? With thanks to William Lam for the tips, it’s possible to trigger specific events that make up alarms. It’s not a simple task (for someone who’s not a developer), but you can do some trial and error to work out how to trigger each event.
