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.

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. If you have installed SAM, you can receive alerts about application response times or when your Exchange mailbox database is almost full.

You can create alerts for any monitored object. You can alert against volumes and nodes with most Orion Platform products.

Use the following topics to get started if you have never used Orion Platform products:

You can also view our Alert Lab on THWACK for community-based alert information.
