When a parent object is down and the dependent child objects are Unreachable, alerts based on polled statistics are not triggered, but you can display active alerts on child objects manually.
Alerts based on default or custom property values are not affected.
If a child object can be polled using a different route, it is polled as usual. Its status does not switch to Unreachable, and alerts are not suppressed.
- Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
- Click Manage Dependencies in the Node & Group Management grouping.
- Select the dependency that includes the child object on which the alerts are active, and click Alerts on Child.
