Alert action severity settingsEvery alert action type allows you to select up to five severities. The alert action will only trigger when used in an alert profile that is tied to an alert threshold with a matching severity.
In the following example, User1 will only receive an sms message if a critical severity threshold is violated.
- An alert action named "send_user1_sms” is created, and defined to send User1 an SMS e-mail for critical events only.
- The “send_user1_sms” alert action is added to an alert profile called “sms messaging.”
- The "sms messaging" alert profile is selected on various alert thresholds. The alert thresholds are of varying severity - some are set for critical, and some are set for warning. If an alarm occurs, User1 will only receive an SMS message for those alert thresholds defined as critical.
You must select at least one severity.
|Information||Typically used to set up an alert action to respond to events considered to be unimportant, but important enough to require alert notifications when they occur.|
|Warning||Typically used to indicate a condition exists that may require attention to make sure it does not deteriorate into a critical state.|
|Error||Typically used by NetBotz Appliances to indicate a sensor threshold violation requires immediate attention. For example, a high temperature violation that could lead to equipment damage.|
|Critical||Typically used to indicate an operational failure requires immediate attention.|
|Failure||Typically used by NetBotz Appliances to indicate an operational failure requires immediate attention. For example, communication with a camera pod was lost which could lead to an undetected security violation.|
