You can set different alert thresholds per device, interface, or other monitored element. For example, it is acceptable to you if most of your nodes reach a 90% threshold for CPU load, but you want a few nodes to alert when they reach a 70% threshold. You can set CPU thresholds locally on a node, and then create a generic alert that notifies you when a threshold has been reached.

  1. Begin by creating the actual trigger condition with a double value comparison.
    1. Click the plus sign.
    2. Select Add Double Value Comparison.

      The trigger condition fields expand, and you can enter a double value comparison trigger.

  2. Include the threshold in the trigger condition.

    An alert will be triggered when the threshold value is reached.
