Health error didn't trigger alert RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    One of my gateway services stopped over the weekend. I got a nice error message in the console, but the center didn't send an alert over Syslog or email. Bug?

    Thanks,

    Fredrik

  • Hi Fredrik,

    Sorry for misleading.  Health alerts are sent only by Email (no syslog) in the current version, as documented here:

    "System Health Alert alerts are only sent via email."

    - Can you confirm your SMTP settings work fine and you get email notification from other events?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Fredrik,

    Does other events generate syslog/email alerts successfully ?

    The Health events should work the same as the others, but just want to confirm this is not a general configuration issue.

  • Yes other events works fine, the problem seems to only affect health alerts.

    I had another gateway service stop tonight with the same result; I get a message in Health Center but no alert over Syslog.

  • I had missed that, thanks. Any plans on supporting Syslog for health alerts?
