Veeam ONE 9.5
Working with Alarms

Step 6. Configure Alarm Suppression Settings

In some cases, you might need to suppress alarms that occur under specific conditions or during a specific time interval. For example, alarms informing about high resource utilization may need to be suppressed if these alarms occur during a scheduled resource consuming operation (such as backup performed with Veeam Backup & Replication or other operations).

For suppressed alarms, Veeam ONE does not show any notifications and does not perform any response actions. If, by the end of suppression period, the object stays affected, Veeam ONE will trigger the alarm with the corresponding severity and will perform the alarm response actions.

On the Suppress tab of the Alarm settings window, specify alarm suppression settings.

Suppressing Alarm During Events

To suppress the alarm under specific conditions or when a specific event occurs, choose one of the following options:

  • Veeam Backup activity — suppresses the alarm when Veeam backup and replication jobs are running. Veeam ONE detects the beginning and the end of jobs and does not trigger the alarm while the jobs are running.

For example, if you select Veeam Backup activity check box for the VM CPU Usage alarm, this alarm will be suppressed for all VMs that are being backed up or replicated — until the jobs are finished.

If you select the Veeam Backup activity check box for the Host CPU Usage alarm, this alarm will be suppressed for the entire host where at least one VM is being backed up or replicated — until the jobs are finished.

  • Snapshot creation — suppresses the alarm during snapshot creation for the object itself or its parent objects.

For example, if you create an alarm for a VM, the alarm will be suppressed for a VM while a snapshot is being created. If you create an alarm for a host, the alarm will be suppressed for the host while a snapshot is being created for any VM on this host.

  • Snapshot deletion — suppresses the alarm during snapshot deletion for the object itself or its parent objects.

For example, if you create an alarm for a VM, the alarm will be suppressed for a VM while a snapshot is being deleted. If you create an alarm for a host, the alarm will be suppressed for the host while a snapshot is being deleted for any VM on this host.

Step 6. Configure Alarm Suppression Settings Note:

  1. To enable the Veeam Backup activity option, make sure that you connected a Veeam Backup & Replication server to Veeam ONE. Otherwise, alarms will not be suppressed during Veeam Backup activity.
  2. Snapshot creation and Snapshot deletion suppression options apply to VMware vSphere alarms only.

Scheduled Alarm Suppression

To suppress the alarm according to a specific schedule during the week:

  1. Select the Suppress alarm based on schedule option.
  2. Specify time intervals on specific weekdays during which the alarm must be suppressed.

You can add more than one record for one weekday. Note that the time intervals specified for the same day must not intersect.
