Managing alarms

Customizing alarms lets you customize your StorageGRID Webscale system based on your unique monitoring requirements.

You can configure customized alarms either globally (Global Custom alarms) or for individual services (Custom alarms). You can create customized alarms with alarm levels that override Default alarms, and you can create alarms for attributes that do not have a Default alarm. Alarm customization is restricted to accounts with the Grid Topology Page Configuration and Other Grid Configuration permissions.
Attention: Using the Default alarm settings is recommended. Be very careful if you change alarm settings. For example, if you increase the threshold value for an alarm, you might not detect an underlying problem until it prevents a critical operation from completing. If you do need to change an alarm setting, you should discuss your proposed changes with technical support.
