Alerts notify you when an issue or error occurs in the virtual environment. The Orion Platform provides alerts for all monitored nodes and applications, including alerts for integrated products. VMAN provides over 40 virtualization alerts to identify common issues in virtual environments including clusters, hosts, datastores, and VMs.
These alerts include:
Monitor alerts after deployment to troubleshoot and maintain your environment. Virtualization alerts trigger for real-time monitored data and events using virtualization thresholds (global and specific to VM). Recommendations require collected data over 1 hour for active to 7 days for predictive to effectively trigger.

Lists all triggered active and predictive recommendations.

Alert categories without triggered issues display as green.
