Managing alarms

Alarms help you evaluate and quickly resolve trouble spots that sometimes occur during normal operation. You can customize StorageGRID alarms to address your specific monitoring requirements.

You can configure custom alarms either globally (Global Custom alarms) or for individual services (Custom alarms). You can create custom 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.
