Adding alerts for performance events

You can configure alerts for individual performance events just like any other events received by Unified Manager. Additionally, if you want to treat all performance events alike and have email sent to the same person, you can create a single alert to notify you when any critical or warning performance events are triggered.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator or Storage Administrator role.

About this task

The example below shows how to create an event for all critical latency, IOPS, and MBps events. You can use this same methodology to select events from all performance counters, and for all warning events.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Configuration > Alerting.
  2. In the Configuration/Alerting page, click Add.
  3. In the Add Alert dialog box, click Name, and enter a name and description for the alert.
  4. Do not select any resources on the Resources page.
    Because no resources are selected, the alert is applied to all clusters, aggregates, volumes, and so on, for which these events are received.
  5. Click Events and perform the following actions:
    1. In the Event Severity list, select Critical.
    2. In the Event Name Contains field, enter latency and then click the arrow to select all the matching events.
    3. In the Event Name Contains field, enter iops and then click the arrow to select all the matching events.
    4. In the Event Name Contains field, enter mbps and then click the arrow to select all the matching events.
  6. Click Actions and then select the name of the user who will receive the alert email in the Alert these users field.
  7. Configure any other options on this page for issuing SNMP taps and executing a script.
  8. Click Save.
