Alert on Node Reboot

Jump to solution

There are some threads where reboot alerts are mentioned, but nothing really detailed on how people are doing it.  Currently I have a basic alert set up to alert on a Node Reboot, and it works quite fine, the majority of the time - sometimes there are misfires of some TrippLite UPSes (have seen mention of others seeing the same thing), and when restarting using Orion Service Manager I get some misfires of old device reboots (which always gets me some calls from management or customers).  My biggest gripe with this basic alert is that there is no reset, so each time a device reboots that alert ends up in the list of Triggered Alerts, and this can build up with hundreds (or even thousands) of nodes and 10-50 devices that could reboot in a week.  The only way I have found to clear that list is to disable and then enable the alert.  And with a few different lists of devices and email addresses they report to that can be 5-10 alerts to disable and enable once a week.

Is there a better way to alert on nodes rebooting?  Essentially I want to get an email when devices in list A reboot, and send an email to customer X when his devices reboot, etc.

Thanks.

Basic alerts are going away (or at least I think they are)

I used an advanced alert and made the condition like this and the reset just reset when no longer true radio button.

We have seen where NTP Servers changing the time on the Devices can cause what seems as False Rebooting. We are completely Reworking Node Rebooting and have added a column to account for possible scenario. It will be resolved in 10.1.2 which is currently in Release Candidate:

NPM 10.1.2 RC will soon be available to registered customers

I have RC and don't get false reboots anymore.  I will say 10.1.2 fixed it.

Hi Aaron,

The issue you describe as follows

"sometimes there are misfires of some TrippLite UPSes (have seen mention of others seeing the same thing), and when restarting using Orion Service Manager I get some misfires of old device reboots (which always gets me some calls from management or customers)."

is an issue for which we have a fix in the 10.1.2 Release Candidate, currently opened for registration (the RC is not available yet, but the registration is).
