Event handlers are conditions associated with actions. If the condition is met, the action is performed.
Event handler conditions are comprised of the following elements:
Groups of assets or individual assets.Important
It is not currently possible to select both groups and individual assets, you must select one or the other.
Advisors you want to raise notifications for.
Event statuses to trigger the notifications (WARNING, CRITICAL, EMERGENCY, and so on).
The conditions are constructed in the following way:
Group AND Advisor AND Status
while the contents of the elements are OR clauses. For example:
(Group A OR Group B) AND (Advisor= MySQL Process OR Advisor=CPU Utilization Advisor) AND (status=Warning OR status=Critical)
If the MySQL Process advisor generates a Warning event for one of the contents of Group A, the condition is true and the associated action is triggered. The action can be one of the following:
Send an email or SNMP notification if one of the following occurs:
The condition evaluates as True.
The condition evaluates as True and the status changes to any other status.
The condition evaluates as True and the status escalates.
Auto-close the event if the current status of the event is OK, but the prior status matched one of those defined in the condition.
