Notification Control

Notification Control determines how many test failures must occur before an alert is sent, as well as the maximum number of alerts that will be sent.

Setting Description
Accumulated Failures per Alert Each time a monitor test fails during a Warn state, the sequential failure count is incremented and checked against the accumulated failures per alert that must occur before alerting can take place. A successful test at any point resets the accumulated failure count to zero.
Maximum Alerts to Send

The number of alerts to process during a Down state before changing the monitor state to Lost.

A successful test by the monitor at any point while in the Down or Lost state will cause the alert sequence to be reset. SolarWinds recommends enabling Send Recovery notifications within alerts to notify you when the monitor recovers.
