This article describes how to receive redundant alerts in ipMonitor.


All ipMonitor versions


To limit the number of alerts sent when critical devices fail, you can create dependency relationships between the critical device monitors and the monitors for resources attached to these devices. 

To configure a dependency relationship:

  1. In the navigation pane, click Groups > Add Group. 
  2. Enter a group name. 
  3. Click Add Members.
  4. Add any monitors that require critical devices to the group.
  5. Click Add Dependencies.
  6. Add the critical device Monitors.
  7. Edit the critical device monitors as required. Ensure that the Delays Between Tests While: Up and Delays Between Tests While: Warn intervals are significantly less than any of the items that depend on it.

To suppress redundant alerts, the monitor targeting critical resources need to reach the red or failure state prior to the monitors that require it. To do this, trigger the alerts on fewer failures by lowering the Accumulated Failures per Alert value of the critical resource monitors.
