Issue/Introduction

why do I get so many alarms for each process monitoring rule?

Environment

Release : 21.2

Component : Spectrum Alarm

Resolution

When we are monitoring a process, we will get 2 alarms when a process goes down, as below.  This went from 1 to 0 for notepad.  1 alarm per process down and 1 process count alarm

When multiple instances off a process go down, we get 1 alarm per process down and 1 process count alarm. Here I went from 5 to 1 putty instances - I got 4 process alarms for the 4 different process that I killed and 1 extra for the process count alarm.

 

To clear these alarms, I have to start 4 more putty processes as the monitored number was 5.
