Create virtualization alerts in the Orion Alert Manager

After integrating VIM with Virtualization Manager, you can define alerts in the Orion Web Console that are based on data collected by Virtualization Manager. You can use virtualization alerts which are included in the product by default, and you can also build custom alerts in the Alert Manager.

For information about creating and editing alerts in the Alert Manager, see Creating New Alerts and the related topics in the VMAN Getting Started Guide.

If VIM is not integrated with Virtualization Manager, virtualization alerts are not available by default. However, you can create your own alerts for object types including:

  • Virtual clusters
  • Virtual hosts
  • Virtual machines

If VIM is integrated with Virtualization Manager, virtualization alerts are available by default. If you remove the integration, these alerts will be disabled, but you can still create your own alerts for object types including:

  • Virtual clusters
  • Virtual datastores
  • Virtual hosts
  • Virtual machines
