CA App Synthetic Monitor DX Application Performance Management

Issue/Introduction

Installed OPMS and now our Linux admin has advised that he is receiving monit alerts in root.  

Is there a way to change this?  While installing OPMS we selected no to receive email alerts.

 

Environment

Release : 10.5

Component : CA APP SYNTHETIC MONITOR (WATCHMOUSE)

Resolution

As Monit is part of Linux and not ASM, there are a number of sites out on the internet that show ways to stop monit from alerting a specific user or other custom configurations.

For this situation, modifying the monitrc file and using set alert [email protected] only on { nonexist } worked for the customer.
