Relation between polling time, evaluation frequecy of alert and wait time in alert

Hi,

I am not able to understand the relation between polling time, evaluation frequecy of alert and wait time in alert.

How this works?

I commented in your other thread about this:

Check my post for a more detailed answer but at a high level:

  1. Polling time / playback interval - how often the system will run through the transaction (go through the playback steps) and record a status in the database
  2. Evaluation frequency of the alert - how often you want SolarWinds to check this alert condition against the collected statistics
  3. Alert trigger wait time (condition must exist for X) - how long the alert trigger condition has to be true before the alert will trigger
