The Alerts application provides automatic, real-time notifications about changes detected in your infrastructure and information delivery patterns.
Depending on purchased products, the application offers you a list of alerts designed to monitor the crucial aspects of your services. The majority of alerts require setting a threshold, that when reached or crossed triggers the alert. But there are also alerts that just notify you about detection of a particular state. To check what alerts you can create with purchased products, check Available alerts.
In the application you can set who needs to be notified about the firing of particular alerts. To learn more about this feature, read Notifications.
The warning sign icon at the top of the screen displays the number of alerts that are active for your account.
