Node Down alert is not triggered after a reboot

Updated: July 19, 2017


When you reboot a server, the Node Down alert is not triggered and no alert email is received.


  • NPM all versions


  • The response interval is too short to trigger the Node Down alert before the server starts responding. If the polling interval is set to the two-minute default, a node must be unresponsive for up to four minutes before it triggers the alert. Most servers respond to pings within two minutes, while virtual machines (VMs) may respond within ten seconds.
  • In some cases, it was due to SQL DB connection issues.
