Configuring Alarm Email Notifications

To stay informed about potential problems in client backup infrastructures, and issues with Veeam Availability Console, you can configure Veeam Availability Console to send email notifications about alarms.

Veeam Availability Console can send two types of email notifications about alarms:

  • Veeam Availability Console can send an email notification with alarm details when a new alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes.
  • Veeam Availability Console can send summary daily email notifications with information about all alarms triggered for the past 24 hours.

Before you can receive alarm notifications, make sure you completed configuration steps described in the following procedures.
