Use alerts with SRM

Alerts are standard throughout the SolarWinds Orion Platform, and are used to provide notification that a specific event has occurred. In SRM, for example, it could mean a storage array is running low on space, or the latency on a device has exceeded its critical threshold.

Events that trigger an alert is determined by conditions set up when the alert is created. When triggered, an alert can launch numerous actions, most commonly sending an email to a specific person or group. However, many other actions can also be set up, such as playing a sound, executing a script, or creating a ServiceNow incident.

See Use alerts to monitor your environment with the Orion Platform for an overview and complete documentation.
