- Output dynamically generated Alert Descriptions
The auto-generated description text may include:
- ‘Top N’ related objects (for example the “Top 5 VMs for CPU usage” on a given host)
- Troubleshooting hints (such as “CPU Limit setting on this VM is very low”)
- Additional guidance and metric correlation data
