Alarm notification types

The StorageGRID Webscale systems sends out two types of alarm notifications: severity level and service state.

Severity level notifications

Severity level notifications are sent at the alarm level and are associated with attributes. A mailing list receives all notifications related to alarm for the selected severity: Notice, Minor, Major, and Critical. A notification is sent when an event triggers an alarm for the selected alarm level. A notification is also sent when the alarm leaves the alarm level — either by being resolved or by entering a different alarm severity level.

Service state notifications

Service State notifications are sent at the services level and are associated with services; for example, the LDR service or CMS service. A mailing list receives all notifications related to changes in the selected state: Unknown, or Administratively Down. A notification is sent when a service enters the selected Service State and when it leaves the selected Service State.
