Every Host can configure triggers that initiate actions (e.g. alarm) when the item data collected meets certain conditions. Alerts are events emerged when a trigger is fired, and automatic actions can be executed as a result . Alerts can be managed on the Account, Site, and Host level, where you can review them and take appropriate action.
The Alerts Tab lists all the Host alerts with key information within the selected entity. Automatic response options include sending E-mail/SMS, helpdesk support to designated recipients.
