to set a global control for how many times Ambari checks an alert before
dispatching a notification.If the alert state changes during a check, Ambari attempts
to check the condition a number of times. That number is called the check
count. You can set the value of check count. Alert check counts are
not applicable to AGGREATE alert types. A state change for an AGGREGATE alert results in a
notification dispatch. If your environment experiences transient issues resulting in false
alerts, you can increase the check count. In this case, the alert state change is still
recorded, but as a soft state change. If the alert condition is still
triggered after the specified number of checks, the state change is considered a hard
state change, and notifications dispatch. Generally, you should set the check
count value globally for all alerts. You can override the global check count value for any
alerts experiencing transient issues.
Wait several seconds for changes made to the global alert check count to appear for
individual alerts in Ambari Web.
In Ambari Web, browse to .
In Check Count, edit the value, as necessary.
