I added a few VMware hosts and guests into NPM. I am trying to figure out the following.
I have an alert that checks for node status is down. If a host goes down, does the alert generate an alert for all of the guests on that host as well? If so, can I prevent this from happening?

Perfect, thanks. What about when a router/switch goes down that the ESX host is connected to? Will the host go unavailable, or generate a down alert?
If you've built dependencies with the switch/router as the parent and the host among the children, then it will show as unavailable and will not generate alerts. As long as the router/switch down state is discovered first, of course.
