WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Overview

When an item is failing, you get an email notification on every alert verification.

Environment

Any Orion module

Cause 

A few possible causes:

  • The Email Action is configured to "Repeat this action every X minutes until the alert is acknowledged".
  • The alert has multiple Email Actions.
  • The component is linked to more than one alert.
  • The Reset Condition is set to "No reset condition – Trigger this alert each time the trigger condition is met".

Resolution

A few possible solutions:

  • Verify the Email Action's Execution Settings and ensure the option to "Repeat this action every X minutes until the alert is acknowledged" is not selected.
  • Verify the Alert's "Trigger Actions" tab and see if there is more than 1 Email Action listed here.
  • Verify if the item is linked to multiple Alerts by opening the Details page for the item and viewing the "Last 25 Events" Web Resource.
  • Set the Alert's Reset Condition to "Reset this alert when trigger condition is no longer true (Recommended)".
