Alert will not be suppressed but all action will not be executed in default. This can be change in Settings-> Polling settings -> Allow alert actions for unmanaged objects.
Wow, this is cool. Just bumped into this post while trying to alert on Unmanaged nodes.
I am trying to setup few alerts for unmanaged objects and trigger an email. Obviously because object is unmanaged - email doesn't get's through. I was just wondering if there is a way to fire actions (such as sending email for example) on the unmanaged object WITHOUT doing this global config change. I am afraid if I will do so - all my previously configured alerts will start firing on Unmanaged nodes, unless I specifically specify additional condition in each of them to "If Unmanaged, then don't fire"
Any help would be appreciate
Yes, all advanced alerts would be suppressed for that node (Alerts wont be suppressed but then they wont get fired as Node would not collect data when its unmanaged). No need to add a Status!=Unmanaged
If you think about a scenario like Disk or CPU (For sure they wont get fired as data wont be collected for them when node is unmanaged) , data present on DB would be pointing to last collected value
Thanks to both of you! Have a good weekend.
What about alerts when a node is in an unreachable state because an upstream device is down?
Say the alert is "Node Status != Up". Would I also need to specify "AND Node Status != Unreachable"?
