Receiving redundant alerts in ipMonitor.
To help limit the number of Alerts sent when critical devices fail, ipMonitor allows you to create dependency relationships between the critical device Monitors and the Monitors for resources that lay beyond these devices.
To configure a dependency relationship, proceed with the following:
Note: In order to be able to properly suppress redundant Alerts, the Monitors targeting critical resources need to reach the "red" or "failure" state prior to the Monitors that require it. One additional way to make critical resource Monitors reach the "red" state faster is to trigger Alerts on fewer failures. This is accomplished by lowering the Accumulated Failures per Alert value of the critical resource Monitors.
