  • Basic Email monitoring alerts

     

    Hello everyone,

    I seem to be having a problem understanding the Email subscription monitoring. I just want to monitor the basics about my servers and the applications running on them. By that I mean the big stuff ie: when the server is down and applications are not working properly. I find it that monitoring everything causes way too many emails to be send out causing the help desk to overlook the important things. I find all the subscription options a bit confusing and I can’t seem to find any documentation on how best to setup email subscription. Can someone tell me what options they use or some documentation showing samples  on how to use the subscription settings. Thank in advance for your help.

  • Hello,

    System Center Essentials 2010 can send a notification to operators as soon as an alert occurs. To configure a notification within a network environment, administrators must complete the following actions:

    1. Enable a notification channel.
    2. Create one or more notification recipients.

    For more details, please see the following articles:

    Too many E-mails in your environment, which means there are too many alerts occured. You need to decrease the number of the alerts. So the following article is just for you:
