Disabling an Alert
Disabling an Alert in ipMonitor doesn't mean that you have to delete the Alert, set the schedule to empty, or change the Alert Range. Instead, simply remove the Alert's ability to send Failure, Recovery and Information Notifications.
To temporarily disable an Alert:
- Click the Alerts menu option, then click the Alert Name of the Alert you want to disable.
- Ensure that the checkboxes for the following options are unchecked:
• Send Failure Notifications
• Send Recovery Notifications
• Send Information Notifications
- Click OK to save your changes.
ipMonitor uses Profiles to bind Monitors and Alerts. When a problem is detected, the following events occur in sequence:
- Profiles are scanned to establish if the Monitor (or the Group the Monitor belongs to) has been assigned to one.
- The Alert Range for each Alert within the Profile is checked to determine if it should be triggered.
- The Alert Schedule is checked to determine if the Alert is active for the current time period.
- Enabled Notifications are sent out. If there are no Notifications enabled, the Alert is not executed.
