Instead of sending an email when an advanced alert triggers, we would like to use webservices to notify upstream monitoring systems.
In appears our only option is to execute external programs or Visual Basic scripts.
So obvious questions include
(1) Will advanced alert mechanism wait for one program to exit before launching the next?
(2) Is there a limt to the number of simultaneous programs the advanced alert mechanism will launch?
(3) Is there a delay in launching the program?
(4) What will the effect on performance be if many programs (20+) are launched in a short period of time?
