I've been using Solarwinds for some time, but still having trouble understanding "Evaluation Frequency of Alert" and it's relation to "Condition must exist for more than".
I believe if the "Evaluation frequency" is set to 1 minute, and the "Condition must exist for more than" is left to it's default, then condition must exist for 10 minutes.
I'm including our node settings to check if this has any influence on the triggers....
|Node Status Polling:||120 seconds|
|Collect Statistics Every:||10 minutes|
If what I understand is true, then the node will be checked in the database every 1 minute for a the alert condition. If the alert condition is met, Solarwinds will continue to check for 10 minutes and if the condition happens again during that 10 minutes (10 evaluations) the alert will trigger?
Thank you, Pat
