Alerts and Notifications - Overview

Alerts can be configured to notify you of events that require attention, or as mechanisms to take automated actions based on conditions configured in an alert. An alert is sent when conditions within the entity have met the criteria selected for the alert. The threshold and notification criteria determine when and at what frequency alerts are generated.

SnapProtect provides the following features:

  • A set of predefined alerts that are recommended for monitoring your CommCell.
  • The ability to create custom alerts based on user defined conditions using custom queries.
  • The ability to create alerts from your current CommCell for one or more remote CommCells registered with your current CommCell.
