Alert preconfiguration tasks
Some alerts require extra configuration, separate software installations, or information that you may need to request from other departments.
Alert actions that require set up before creating or configuring alerts include:
- Send an email or page
- Dial a paging or SMS service
- Play a sound when an alert is triggered
- Send an SNMP trap
- Use the speech synthesizer to read alerts
Monitored objects in the SolarWinds Orion database must exist before creating or configuring alerts. Monitored objects can include items such as nodes, databases, and applications.
