After you connect virtual or backup servers, Veeam ONE Monitor starts collecting data about objects in your environment and their health state, and checks this data against alarm configuration in real time. If Veeam ONE Monitor detects that behavior or state of an infrastructure object meets alarm criteria, or that a specific event occurs, it triggers an alarm with the corresponding severity level.
After an alarm is triggered, Veeam ONE Monitor console will display alarm details and information about the affected object. You can view, acknowledge or resolve the alarm. If an alarm is configured to perform some action, Veeam ONE Monitor performs a response action after the alarm is triggered — sends an email notification, SNMP trap or runs a custom script.
If the event, state or condition that triggered the alarm is resolved, Veeam ONE Monitor updates the alarm status in the console.
