4.5.2.3 Modifying or Deleting an Alert

Table of Contents Previous Next



Use the Alerts table to manage an existing alert or create a new alert. Highlight an object in the PEM client tree control to view the alerts that monitor that object.
The Alert name column displays the name of the alert; to change the alert name, simply replace the name in the table, and click the save icon.
The Alert template column displays the name of the alert template that specifies properties used by the alert. You can use the drop-down listbox to change the alert template associated with an alert.
Use the Alert enable? switch to specify if an alert is enabled (Yes) or disabled (No).
Use the Interval column to specify how often PEM should check to see if the alert conditions are satisfied. Set the Default switch to No and specify an alternate value (in Minutes), or return the Default switch to Yes to reset the value to its default setting. By default, PEM will check the status of each alert once every minute.
Use the History retention field to specify the number of days that PEM will store data collected by the alert. Set the Default* switch to No and specify an alternate value (in Days), or return the Default switch to Yes to reset the value to its default setting. By default, PEM will recommend storing historical data for 30 days.
Use fields on the Alert details dialog (see Figure 4.43) to modify the definition of the selected alert. When you've finished modifying the alert definition, click Save to preserve your changes, or Cancel to exit the dialog without saving any changes.
To mark an alert for deletion, highlight the alert name in the Alerts table and click the delete icon to the left of the name; the alert will remain in the list, but in red strike-through font (see Figure 4.44).
To copy alerts from an object, highlight the object in the PEM client tree control on the main PEM window, and select the Copy Alerts... option from the Management menu. When the Manage Alerts tab opens, click the Copy Alerts icon (located in the Quick Links toolbar) to open the Copy Alert Configuration dialog (see Figure 4.45).
The Copy Alert Configuration dialog copies all alerts from the object highlighted in the PEM client tree control to the object or objects selected on the dialog. Expand the tree control to select a node or nodes to specify the target object(s). The tree control displays a red warning indicator next to the source object.
확인 Ignore duplicates radio button to prevent PEM from updating any existing alerts on the target objects with the same name as those being copied. Use the Replace duplicates option to replace existing alerts with alerts of the same name from the source object.
Click the Configure Alerts button to proceed to copy the alerts from the source object to all objects of the same type in, or under those objects selected on the Copy Alert Configuration dialog.
