Creating an Alert Policy

You can use SMM to create an alert policy in your environment.

Perform the following steps to create an alert policy:

  1. From the left navigation pane, select Alerts.
    The Alerts Overview page appears.
  2. Click ALERT POLICIES.
  3. Click ADD NEW to create a new alert policy.
    The Alert Policy window appears.
  4. Configure the following properties:
    PropertyDescription
    NAME Enter a unique name for the alert policy.
    DESCRIPTION Enter a description for the alert policy.
    EXECUTION INTERVAL IN SECONDS Enter the execution interval in seconds to execute the alert policy periodically after the given time interval.
    EXECUTION DELAY IN SECONDS Enter the execution delay in seconds to delay the execution of the alert policy. This is applicable only when the last execution of the alert policy triggered an alert. Ideally, this value should not be less than the value you enter for the EXECUTION INTERVAL IN SECONDS option.
    ENABLE Choose to enable or disable the alert policy.

    • Topic
    • Producer
    • Cluster
