          Good day,

           

          these questions are rather to NPM team or other product you're using. But I'll share my own knowledge on this.

          I can't tell you about groups tab, but you can limit a number of incoming from Orion alerts by:

          1) selecting nodes (devices) to monitor. You can set it up on SolarWindsOrion Console ->Home -> Summary -> Manage Nodes

          2) selecting events which alerts are triggered on.

          Advanced Alert Manager (it's in your programs) -> Configure Alerts -> Manage Alerts. Here you can select which events will be the triggered as alerts

          The same you can do for Basic Alerts:

          Basic Alert Manager (it's in your programs) -> Configure Alerts -> Manage Alerts. Here you can select which events will be the triggered as alerts

          Severity is assigned to every event separately. So you can just select needed events and specify severity for them. See examples below
