Whatsup Gold Question -> Newbie Questions
Posted on 2009-05-07
Posted on Whatsup Gold Forum as well, however several people have looked at the posts, no one has offered any advice.. I have all the confidence in the world in someone here will know the answers! ;o)
1) I have created several active monitors alerting me of when cpu and memory utilization hits over a certain percentage and when it comes back down.
What I would like in the email action is to insert what the actual reading is.. kind of like how the server event log shows it as a variable. i.e. \\server3\Memory\% Committed Bytes In Use has tripped its alert threshold. The counter value of 60.0287878838493 is over the limit value of 39. <- This basically is an alert for memory utilization over and above 40%.
Does anyone know how to do this?
2) With the specific email actions I have created on my active monitors, is there a way I can exclude those monitors from a higher action?
We have an email action that alerts everyone in our group if there is monitor triggered. The active monitors I created are for DBA use only and at this time there is no need for my group to know that the utilizations are over 40%. BUT when the active monitor is triggered at a utilization over 40% the action triggered is the specific dba email + the all monitor trigger email. All I want is the specific dba email.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Since every time our group receives the all monitor email our hearts drop because it states a server has went down (the agreed upon subject line) when really the threshold for my specific performance monitor has been triggered. Help.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me!
