Event Monitor issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is a one watcher service that at  every configured time tries out 4 operations on a  server and every time an error occurs an event is logged. This is the same event id for all the 4 kind of operations.So what happens is even if an alert is generated because of one event  from a server, it immediately gets closed because of a success event from another server ( all these transaction runs from same watcher so event id is logged in same ).

    So how we can generate one alert per server.there is one parameter in event data that will identify the server.and how we can close the alert for a server.Alert should be closed only when all 4 operations are successful on a server.

  • Hi 

    looks like monitor is of event reset monitor type and you can not achieve the desired results with one monitor for for event id's. 

    need to disable current monitor and create 4 different monitors one for each with criteria on uniquely event data, so that each monitor will track one event id. if you are looking for only one alert  from 4 event id create an aggregate monitor with all new 4 monitors with alerting disabled under aggregate monitor and enable alerting on aggregate monitor, so that you will receive only one alert and will only close if 4 monitors are healthy.

  • Hi,

    I know you want the Alert get closed when all 4 operations are successful. However, I'm afraid it cannot be achieved.
