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 action ruleSelect the conditions that an alert must match for the rule to apply and configure actions that the rule can execute for matching alerts. Configure alert action rules to remediate alerts and CI remediation rules to remediate a set of CIs. 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 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 monitoringAlert generation and remediation can be monitored from the Event Management dashboards, alert console, and alert timeline.Alert and CI remediationAlert and configuration item (CI) remediations help troubleshoot and resolve underlying problems that generate alerts. Remediation is based on Orchestration workflows that can be scripted to perform remediation tasks such as gathering system information or rebooting a server.Use the Event Management overview dashboardThe Event Management overview module uses Performance Analytics to present data from your instance for you to better visualize and understand your processes and drive continual improvement.Self-health monitorsConfigure Event Management to continuously monitor its system health. 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 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.
