Wait for multiple objects to meet the trigger condition

With complex conditions enabled, you can choose to trigger alerts only when multiple objects meet the trigger condition.

After you have enabled complex conditions, the following option is available in your trigger condition:

This setting combines all alerts that would be sent for each object into a single alert.

Do not use this setting until you are confident that the trigger condition is correct. This setting can prevent important alerts from triggering.

For example, if you were monitoring computers used in a high availability cluster, you may only want to be alerted if more than half the cluster is down at the same time.

  1. Enable complex conditions.
  2. In the trigger condition, select Alert can be triggered if.
  3. Enter how many objects must meet the trigger condition before sending an alert.
