Alerts

The Alerts feature in Exchange Reporter Plus allows you to identify actions in the monitoring data that pose a potential threat to your Exchange environment. It classifies threats based on their severity level, like critical, trouble, and attention. When one such threat is recognized, an alert is generated to notify the user. This page talks about:

  1. Viewing the alerts
  2. Creating new alert profiles
  3. Customizing alert profiles

  1. Click Alerts in the left pane.

Creating new alert profiles

To create new alert profiles:

  1. Click Alerts in the left pane.
  2. Choose New Alert Profile in the top-right corner.
  3. Enter a suitable Name and Severity for the alert profile.
  4. Select a Category of reports and a particular report from the category for which you would like to set the alert.
  5. Enter an alert Message. (You can also use the available macros to customize the message further).
  6. Under Advanced Settings, enable and configure the E-mail or SMS notification if you would like to get immediate messages on the alerts triggered.
  7. You can also set the Threshold levels and Filter Rules to trigger the alerts under the Filter Criteria tab.
    Note: Alerts are not applied on all the data gathered by the product, because not all data has critical implications on an Exchange environment. Therefore, there is an option to use filter rules to leave out certain data and make the data more concentrated and meaningful.
  8. Click Create.
