    Solarwinds Orion Alerts on Client Machines




      We are looking at the way our Solarwinds Orion alerts us to downed nodes.  Our main Orion server is sat in our server room and so we use client machines to log into and monitor Orion via a web browser.  We currently have it set to email us when a node goes down and again after ten minutes of it being down.


      We are looking to make the alert more prominent so that it isn't missed when we are not looking at the web browser or in the mailbox where the alerts are sent to.  Ideally, we would like to set an audible alert, but after looking into this I believe that this can only be done on the main Orion server? (please correct me if I'm wrong!).


      The other thing we have done is to set an audible alert when a 'downed node' email is sent to Outlook, but this seems to be unreliable to say the least. 


      If anybody has set up something on their client machines, audible or otherwise, to make alerts more prominent then I would be grateful to know what and how you implmented them.


      Thanks in advance!
