Alarm classes

Alarms are separated into three mutually exclusive alarm classes.

Default alarms

Default alarms are provided with each StorageGRID system and cannot be modified. However, you can disable Default alarms or override them by defining Global Custom alarms or Custom alarms.

Global Custom alarms

Global Custom alarms monitor the status of all services of a given type in the StorageGRID system. You can create a Global Custom alarm to override a Default alarm system-wide. You can also create a new Global Custom alarm that will monitor status system-wide. This can be useful for monitoring any customized conditions of your StorageGRID system.

Custom alarms

Custom alarms monitor the status of a single service or component. You can create a Custom alarm to override a Default alarm or Global Custom alarm at the service or component level. You can also create new Custom alarms based on the service’s unique requirements.
