Record when an alert is triggered to the NetPerfMon (NPM) event log on your SolarWinds Orion server or on a remote server for later investigation.

  1. When editing or adding an alert, click Add Action in the Trigger or Reset Action section of the Alert Wizard.
  2. Select Log the Alert to the NetPerfMon Event Log from the options, and then click Configure Action
  3. Under Log the Alert to the NetPerfMon Event Log settings, enter the text you want written to the file.

    Use variables to make the message dynamic.

  4. Schedule the action by selecting Time of Day > Use special Time of Day schedule for this action . This schedule only applies to the alert action you are editing.
    This is often used to prevent an action from occurring during specific windows.
  5. Expand Execution Settings to select when the action occurs.
  6. Click Add Action.

The action is added to the trigger or reset action list, and you can test the action using the Simulate button. When the trigger or reset conditions of the alert are met, the alert is logged to the NPM event log with the message you created.
