Solarwinds & Cisco Live! Barcelona
Join us from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February at Cisco Live 2018 in Barcelona, where we will continue to show how monitoring the network with SolarWinds will keep you ahead of the game. At our booth (WEP 1A), we will demonstrate how SolarWinds network solutions can help. As a bonus, we are also hosting a pre-event webinar - Blame the Network, Hybrid IT Edition with our SolarWinds Head Geek™, Patrick Hubbard on January 24th - GMT (UTC+0): 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. There's still time to RSVP.

Evaluate multiple condition blocks for SAM

You can use complex conditions to evaluate multiple condition blocks, or sections, independently. For example, you may want to create an alert when an application is down and when your fail-over server is active for more than an hour.

  1. Enable complex conditions.
  2. Click Add Section.
  3. Select And then after from the drop-down menu between the two condition sections.

  4. Choose how long to wait before evaluating the next section.
  5. Create the next condition block.

How condition blocks are evaluated

The condition blocks are evaluated at the same time. If they are all true based on the conditions, the alert triggers. For example, condition A, B, and C must be true in order for the alert to trigger.

(Condition A) & (Condition B) & (Condition C)

Condition blocks are evaluated using variations of AND, so the trigger condition in each section must be met.

A condition block can be evaluated at a different time than other condition blocks. For example, if you want to be alerted if the backup system is active for more than an hour, you can choose to wait an hour after the primary condition block, where the application going down is the trigger condition, before evaluating whether the backup system is still active.
