|Alert type||Alert name||Keys to enter in diagnostic_info|
|beacon_type||Type of the beacon and it must be "encoder:alert" for all the alert beacons||encoder:alert|
|encoder_id||A unique identifier for the encoder. This should be constant for all the beacons generated from the same encoder.||e007|
|encoder_ip||IP address of the encoder.||192.168.2.20|
|time||Represents the epoch time when the configuration beacon is generated||1456445060|
|stream_id||Stream identifier that uniquely identifies the stream per Akamai configuration. Provide this if the alert is specific to a stream; otherwise, you can ignore it.||12345|
|alert_id||Encoder assigned identifier to identify an alert. The ideal value would be some guid.||7CB59AEAA19F093B40D20F530DE0949A|
|impact||Identifies the impact area of the alert.
It can have the values:
Also refer to the alert_name field below. impact should follow the categorization defined based on alert_name.
The field is added to provide future integration of vendor-defined alerts that are not in the predefined list from Akamai.
|severity||Represents severity of the alert related
to its impact. It can have the values
|alert_name||Name of the alert. It must be one of the
following pre-identified alerts:
|description||Encoder specific description of an alert. It can contain arbitrary strings providing more ID context for the alert (such as what caused the alert).||"ASI loss due to reason ..."|
|diagnostic_info||Field providing additional alert context
data to help with diagnostics.
Format: A set of
See Alert types for a list of alerts.
|action||Encoder vendor suggested action hints. It provides hints/pointers to recover from the triggered alert. For example"restart may help" or "reconfigure variants".|
The following is an example of an alert beacon:
