Trying to figure out how to do a couple of things.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this?
You could steal a play from the solarwinds built in alerts for Top CPU and Memory processes.
Step 1, trigger alert and the action is to launch your script to tracert (l33t Tracer-T video )
add an escalation, wait maybe a minute or two for the script to run, now the trick is that one of the final actions of your script is it needs to add a note to the solarwinds alert containing the stats you want to see, Alerts · solarwinds/OrionSDK Wiki · GitHub
Step 2 send out an email on the alert, and in the body of the message include the variable for alert notes
