    Alert when a node goes down

    jleecong

      I'm trying to create a alert for whenever a Windows node is down (aka Red), but am having some issues. Below is the simple trigger we are using, but it doesn't work. I don't think Node Status is returning the proper value.

       

      Trigger Condition

          Property to monitor: APM: Hardware

          Vendor is equal to Windows

          Node Status is equal to Down

          Property to monitor should be "Node" in this case. "APM: Hardware" is child entity of Node which is present only for nodes which has enabled Hardware monitoring feature. BTW, there is out of the box predefined alert called "Alert me when a node goes down" (which only does not contain filter to Vendor) for inspiration.

              I'm unable to edit or even add a trigger action to the default alert as I get "Please specify a complete Trigger Condition, Field not specified or invalid". I also need to specify that it only alerts for Windows servers.

               

              If I add a Simple Condition my only option is CPU & Memory and even then I only have 2 options for Memory Available.DownAlert.jpg

                  This message means that trigger condition is not complete - there must be no empty fields left (marked with star) in trigger conditions when closing Edit Alert dialog. Existing conditions may get corrupted when changing "property to monitor". Removing all conditions and add them again may help in this case.

                   

                  Can you see this limited set of options when you create completely new alert or try to edit predefined "Alert me when a node goes down" too?

                   

                  It should look like this:
