Manage and monitor alerts An alert is a notification generated by Event Management for selected events that are considered to be important and require attention. The generation of alerts is based on event rules. After alerts generate, the manner in which you can monitor and resolve alerts is based on alert configuration settings and properties, and alert impact calculation. Create or edit an alert ruleSelect the conditions that an alert must match for the rule to apply, and configure actions that the rule can execute for matching alerts. Alert lifecycle configurationEvent Management provides various modules, templates, and properties for configuring alerts and the actions that execute for these alerts.Alert impact calculationImpact calculation shows the magnitude of an outage on CIs, services, alerts, and alert groups. As an alert generates, factors such as impact rules and CI relationships are used to calculate the severity. The alert severity is then displayed on the impact tree, business service or manual service maps, and dashboards.Alert managementAs alerts generate, you can view more information about them, acknowledge them, and take action to resolve them. You can also manually create alerts to track issues that did not generate an event or alert.Alert monitoringAlert generation and remediation can be monitored from the Event Management dashboards, alert console, and alert timeline.Alert group typesAlerts are correlated, or grouped, either automatically or manually into (R)ule-based, (A)utomated, (M)anual, or (C)MDB alert groups. Grouping alerts enables you to narrow down problems by focusing on the primary alerts in the correlated group. Alert correlation rulesAlert correlation rules enable you to manually classify alerts into primary and secondary, and establish a relationship between them. Use alert correlation rules to group alerts that are related.
