Event correlation alerts (Y after X) in the SolarWinds Platform
This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:
Hybrid Cloud Observability Essentials — Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced
DPAIM — IPAM — LA — NAM — NCM — NPM — NTA — SAM — SCM — SRM — UDT — VMAN — VNQM — WPM
You may have some conditions you want to alert on if Y happens after X. For example, you might want to receive an alert if there is a problem with your failover. In this example, if node A goes down, the alert waits 5 minutes, and then checks that node B is up. If node B is not up, the alert is triggered.
Make sure to select a And then after value, which is located between the alert sections.
Then, in the secondary section, configure the actual trigger condition so that Node Name is equal to Node B and Node Status is equal to Down.
