Time to upgrade! NAM is scheduled for end of support. It's time to move to Dynatrace our all-in-one software intelligence platform.

Alert definitions provided with NAM

The following alerts are supported by at least one of the NAM report servers (CAS or ADS). Unless specified otherwise, the alert definitions apply to the CAS.

They are the alerts listed on the Predefined tab.

Listing predefined alerts

  1. Open the Alert management screen.

  2. Click the Predefined tab to list all predefined alerts.
    This is your starting point for managing all predefined alerts.

    • Some predefined alerts are installed as disabled.
    • By default, disabled alerts are not listed, so be sure to select the Show disabled check box if you want to see all predefined alerts, whether they are enabled or disabled.
    • Use the Type to display list to narrow your list to a certain type of alert.
    • Use the Filter box and OK button to narrow the list to alerts that match your string.

Working with predefined alerts

Unlike user-defined alerts, the editing options for predefined alerts are limited.

For a predefined alert, you can modify (on a device):

  • Alert basic settings

    • Alert name
    • Alert description
  • Triggering and propagation settings

    • Detection settings
    • Output filters
    • Propagation settings
  • Alert notifications

  • Alert recipients

    • E-mails
    • Trap Recipients
    • Mobile
    • Script

Other differences between user-defined and predefined alerts include:

  • Unlike metric-based user-defined alerts, the extended editor functionality is not available for predefined alerts and the detector parameters and their values are displayed in the form of a simple list.

  • By default, some predefined alerts are enabled and some are disabled.

  • You can edit the detector and notification settings for a predefined alert only on a single CAS.

  • You cannot change the default assignment of an alert to a given report server.

  • Some of the pre-defined alerts cannot be deleted from the system, including:






  • HOT_IP




  • EXC_ACT2

  • Enabling and disabling of the definitions works in the same way as for the user-defined alerts.
