Viewing and Configuring Alarms Globally
Configuring Alarms is the final step in monitoring your applications or services.
Once the Monitor is associated with the Monitor Group, alarms can be configured through the Configure Alarm screen. This provides an overview of all the attributes of the Monitor in a Monitor Group, and the thresholds and actions associated with the attribute.
|How to Demos: Have a look at our demo on configuring Alarms in our website.|
The purpose of Global Alarm Configuration is that you can associate thresholds and actions directly rather than from the individual Monitor screen. Additionally, you can view all the thresholds and actions associated with the attributes of a Monitor Type/ Monitor Group / Monitor in a single screen.
You can perform the following functions in the screen:
You can create and associate a threshold for an attribute
by clicking 'associate' link. It opens the 'configure alarms' page, herein
you can create a new threshold or apply an existing threshold for the attribute.
Note: By selecting 'Apply to selected monitors', the threshold for this attribute is applied to selected / all monitors of the same type. For eg., say you are associating a threshold for Response time of a particular Linux server. By selecting 'Apply to selected monitors', the threshold for response time can be applied to all Linux servers or to a select number of Linux servers.
For more information, refer to the Associating Threshold and Action with Attributes section.
You can edit already existing thresholds by clicking on
the threshold name.
Note: You can also view the Global Alarm Configuration screen by clicking 'Configure Alarms' under admin tab.
