Veeam ONE 9.5 Update 4
Working with Alarms

Step 1. Select Alarm Object Type

All alarms are applied to a certain level of the monitored infrastructure. The Type attribute of an alarm defines to what kind of infrastructure objects this alarm applies. The list of available alarm types is displayed in the inventory pane of the Alarm Management view.

To create a new alarm, select its type first:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. At the bottom of the inventory pane, click Alarm Management.
  2. In the alarm management tree, select the necessary object type.
  3. In the Actions pane on the right, click the New link.

You can also right-click anywhere in the information pane and choose New from the shortcut menu.

Step 1. Select Alarm Object Type Note:

Mind that you will not be able to change the alarm type later.

Creating Alarms from Tasks or Events

You can create an alarm that is based on a task or event that occurred in the monitored infrastructure. Veeam ONE will add the Event-based rule type to the alarm configuration, and will trigger this alarm for all events with the same name. For details on the Event-based rules, see Adding Event-Based Rules.

To create an alarm from a task or event:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. Choose the necessary view — Infrastructure view, vCloud Director View, Business View or Data Protection View.
  2. In the information pane, navigate to the Tasks & Events tab.
  3. Right-click a task or event for which you want to create an alarm, choose Create new alarm from the shortcut menu and then choose an object type.

Creating Alarms from Performance Chart Counters

You can create an alarm from a performance counter. Veeam ONE will add to the alarm configuration a rule based on resource usage counter, and will trigger this alarm every time the counter reaches the specified values. For details on the rules based on resource usage counters, see Adding Rules Based on Resource Usage Counters.

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. Select the necessary view — Infrastructure view, vCloud Director View, Business View or Data Protection View.
