Alert policy

Alert policies are created to alert about metrics, and are triggered when the specified conditions are met. Alert policies are created per VDC.

You can use the Settings > Alerts Policy page to view alert policies.

There are two types of alert policy:

System alert policies
  • System alert policies are precreated and exist in ECS during deployment.
  • All the metrics have an associated system alert policy.
  • System alert policies cannot be updated or deleted.
  • System alert policies can be enabled/disabled.
  • Alert is sent to the UI and all channels (SNMP, SYSLOG, and Secure Remote Services).
User-defined alert policies
  • You can create User-defined alert policies for the required metrics.
  • Alert is sent to the UI and customer channels (SNMP and SYSLOG).
