Alerts are triggered when a monitored value exceeds a threshold. Orion comes with predefined static thresholds for most statistics, but you can you can override global thresholds on a per-node basis. For example, one node might have a lower response time requirement than another, so you can set the threshold values accordingly.

The following example shows how to modify the Memory Usage threshold.

  1. On the Node Details page, in the Management resource, click Edit Node.
  2. In the Alerting Threshold section, click the Override Orion General Thresholds check box.
  3. Change the threshold values:
    1. If you are entering a static threshold, type the Warning and/or Critical values.
    2. If you are using a dynamic threshold, click Use Latest Baseline Thresholds.
