Global Scan Colour Change For Acknowledged Alerts

by Jun 5, 2008


Most of the time our monitoring PC sits there with the global scan “all elements” page showing. We're lucky enough to have all the servers we're interested in on the same screen at the same time.

Our problem is that there are some servers where some metrics are permanently in the warning or red state – and are like that by design, or by limitations.

I still want to monitor these servers, but I do not want to exclude these elements, or change their thresholds to force a “green” state.

Therefore, is it possible to make new warnings or criticals flash, and have the option to change the colour when acknowledging alerts to another colour, like blue?

This would make it much easier to keep track of new alerts as they appear on the monitor, without relying on monitoring email.
