Alerts overview


You can configure System Manager to send storage array alerts by email, SNMP traps, and syslog messages.

What are alerts?

Alerts notify administrators about important events that occur on the storage array. Events can include such issues as a battery failure, a component moving from Optimal to Offline, or redundancy errors in the controller. All Critical events are considered "alertable," along with some Warning and Informational events.

How do I configure alerts?

You can configure alerts to be sent as a message to one or more email addresses, as an SNMP trap to an SNMP server, or as a message to a syslog server. Alert configuration is available from Settings  Alerts.
