Table of contents

On the Actions tab of the Alarm settings window, specify what actions should be performed after the alarm is triggered or after alarm status changes. You can choose to notify virtual infrastructure administrators or run a custom script.

NOTE:

To be able to receive email and trap notifications, you should configure general mail and trap notification settings either using the Configuration Wizard or adjusting Veeam ONE Monitor server settings. To learn how to configure notification settings for alarms, see Configuring Alarm Notification Settings.

1.From the Action list, select the necessary action:
Send email to a default group is the default action that applies to all new alarms. Select this option if you want to send an email notification to all recipients included in the Default email notification group when the alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes. The Default email notification group can be configured in Veeam ONE Monitor server settings.
Send email notification — select this option if you want to send an email notification to specific recipients when the alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes. Enter recipients’ email addresses in the Value field. If you want to specify several recipients, separate email addresses with semicolons.
Send SNMP trap — select this option if you want to send a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap when the alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes. You can use SNMP traps to feed alarm notification data into SNMP-enabled system monitors, such as CA Unicenter, BMC Patrol, IBM Tivoli or HP OpenView. Veeam ONE Monitor allows you to send trap notifications to 4 different destinations at once.

Veeam ONE Monitor provides the following information in the body of an SNMP notification: name of the affected node, old alarm status, new alarm status, alarm name and triggering summary.

Run script — select this option if you want to run a custom script when the alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes. By running a post-alarm script, you can automate routine tasks that are normally performed when specific alarms fire. For example, if a critical system is affected, you may need to immediately open a ticket with the in-house support or perform some corrective actions that will eliminate the problem.

In the Value field, enter the path to the executable file (please note that the executable file must be located on the Veeam ONE server). You can use the following parameters in the command line for running the script: %1 — alarm name; %2— fired node name; %3 — triggering summary; %4 — time; %5 — alarm status; %6 — old alarm status.

2.In the Condition field, describe when the action should be performed:
Errors and warnings — select this option if the action should be performed every time when the alarm status changes to Error or Warning.
Errors only — select this option if the action should be performed every time when the alarm status changes to Error.
Any state — select this option if the action should be performed every time when the alarm status changes to Error, Warning or Info.

If necessary, you can create multiple actions for the same alarm. To add a new action, click the Add button at the bottom and repeat steps 1-2 for every new actions.
