Alarms This lesson discusses alarms and teaches about the following:
- Creating alarms with condition-based triggers
- Creating alarms with event based triggers
- Viewing and acknowledging alarms
An alarm is a way to get notified when an event or condition exists; there is a lot of flexibility in creating the triggers that will allow the alarm to happen. You can use default alarms or you can make custom alarms for clusters, data centers, distributed storage or networks. A mature VM should have a certain number of alarms in place so an administrator can be notified when problems occur.
