Orion alerting software can alert on polled, syslog, and trap data. Alerts are defined in terms of thresholds related to data in the Orion database. Scans in the form of SQL queries at set intervals detect recorded values that exceed thresholds, triggering an alert if relevant conditions pertain.

When an Orion alert is triggered, the software evaluates suppression criteria. If an alert is not qualified to be suppressed, the software executes a defined action. If no action is defined, the software merely displays the alert on the web console.

Throughout this workflow, timers are used to allow the software to do its work at each step and to ensure that the alerting workflow had appropriate redundancy for timely reporting of alerts.
