An alert is an automated notification that a network event has occurred, such as a server becoming unresponsive. The network event that triggers an alert is determined by conditions you set up when you configure your alert. You can schedule alerts to monitor your network during a specific time period, and create alerts that notify different people based on how long the alert has been triggered. Available notifications include for example sending a web page in an email.

The types of events for which you can create alerts vary, depending on the Orion Platform products you have installed. For example, you can create an alert to notify you if a node in a specific location goes down or if the network response time is too slow when you have NPM. See NetFlow-specific predefined alerts for a list of out-of-the box alerts delivered with NTA.

For more information about alerts, see Use alerts to monitor your environment in the NPM Administrator Guide.
