An alert group defines a set of alerts to be run against a set of database instances. Alert groups simplify alert configuration and help make alerting more consistent across the monitored database instances. When you add alerts to an alert group, you do not have to select database instances within each alert definition. Instead, you select the database instances just once for the entire group. If the list of instances changes, you can update it in only one place.

  1. On the DPA menu, click Alerts.
  2. Click the Alert Groups tab.
  3. Click Create Alert Group.

  4. Enter a unique name and a brief description.

  5. Select the alerts to include in this group.

  6. Select the database instances on which to execute these alerts.

  7. Click Save.
