If a virtual machine is experiencing performance issues, you can have an alert trigger the virtual machine to be suspended. This alert management action is only available if the integration with Virtualization Manager is enabled.

  1. When editing or adding an alert, click Add Action in the Trigger or Reset Action section of the Alert Wizard.
  2. Select Manage VM - Suspend, and click Configure Action.
  3. Under Select Virtual Machine, specify the virtual machine that you want to suspend.
    1. To suspend the virtual machine that triggered the alert, click Execute this action.

      This option is only available if the alert is built to trigger for virtual machines.

    2. To suspend a different virtual machine, click Select specific VM, and search for a virtual machine.
  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. Select how frequently this action occurs for each triggered alert in Execution Settings.

  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 specified virtual machine is suspended.
