After configuring SNMP alerts on APM to trigger an automated trap monitoring tool, the alert message format received looks like below, eg:
- The Alert \"<Service Number> ServerUp\ "fell below danger target of 1"
- The Alert \"<Service Number> ServerUp\ "opened|closed a danger alert”
Why sometimes the alert message is "fell below danger target of X" and sometimes "Closed|Opened a danger alert"?
Alert messages depend on the alert configuration and majorly on Periods Over Threshold as well as Observed periods and condition operator:
- If Observed Periods is greater than 1 then alert message will have "opened/closed a danger/caution alert".
- If Observed Periods is 1 and based on condition operator alert message will have "fell below/exceeded danger/caution target of"
