Create ACI-specific alerts and reports

There are no out-of-the-box alerts and reports specific for ACI. You can configure custom notifications based on ACI events and custom reports showing ACI-relevant statistics.

Review the following customization examples:

Alert on health score values lower than 90% on an ACI tenant

Create a new alert to notify you when the health score on an ACI tenant drops below 90%.

  1. Select Alerts & Activity > Alerts, and click Manage Alerts.
  2. Click Add New Alert.
  3. On Trigger Condition, select the ACI entity you want to be alerted about. In this case, select ACI Tenant.

  5. In the neighboring boxes, select Health Score, "is less than or equal to" and enter the percentage when you want to be alerted.

  6. Specify the trigger action and complete the wizard.
  7. After the health score on the selected entity falls below the specified percentage, you will be alerted using the method you specified.

Alert on ACI polling issues on an APIC

In case of polling issues, the status of monitored ACI APICs changes to unknown. The following steps describe how you can duplicate and edit an out-of-the box alert to be alerted if an APIC status changes to unknown.

  1. Select Alerts & Activity > Alerts, and click Manage Alerts.
  2. Find the Node is down alert, select it and click Duplicate and Edit.
  3. On Properties, adjust the alert name.
  4. On Trigger Condition, change the entity in Trigger condition to ACI APIC.
  5. Change the trigger condition to say Alert me when the ACI APIC status is equal to Unknown, and click Next.

  6. Adjust the trigger action and complete the wizard.

When an ACI APIC is in Unknown status, you will be notified by the configured trigger action.
