Manage Alerts

inSync displays a high-level view of alerts on the Manage Alerts page. Alerts are sorted based on their severity and the time of generation. Each UI component is discussed in detail in their respective sections.

Alert Filters

Use alert filters to view alerts of specific severity and type. You can also filter an alert just by its type to view its status. The filters are list boxes on the Manage Alerts page labeled All Severity and All Types by default.

Based on your selection,the alerts are filtered on the Recent or Older tab, whichever is active. The severity filter also filters alert types list and only the relevant alert types are displayed in the alert types list for selection.

The following table shows the severity and the relevant alert types.

Alerts of severity as Notifications are not included in the table as they are not displayed on the Recent and Older tabs, and hence cannot be filtered.

Note: Filters do not have any effect on the information displayed on the widgets. However, widgets are hidden when you use filters. You can click  to display the widgets again.

Search by Source

Use Search by Source to search alerts generated for a specific source. The search applies to the Recent and Older tabs. 

Note that when you perform Search by Source, the widgets are hidden. 

To cancel your search, click .

Widgets

Widgets display a high-level view of the alerts. You get an instant view of alerts based on severity, type and when they were created. The statistics displayed on the widgets are cumulative and do not include mute alerts as well as alerts of severity as Notification. Thus, the widget statistics may change when you mute or unmute an alert. 

Widgets appear empty initially when alerts are yet to be generated. This is observed when the installation is new and inSync is yet to generate an alert. 

Each widget is explained in the following table:

Widget name Description

Summary

 

Displays a pie chart of active alerts categorized by their severity. Different color schemes are assigned to each severity. 

Top Alert Types

 

 

Displays a bar chart of top five most occurred alert types. This helps you to identify the major alert types generated in your environment. 
If the type of alerts are less than five, corresponding number of bars are displayed.

Alert Activities by Days

Mouse over the bars to view the respective alert counts. A count of alerts older than 30 days is displayed on the top right corner of the widget.

  • You can restore the view when you click  .

Recent and Older tabs

Recent and Older tabs display alerts sorted by their severity. Alerts can be Critical, High, Warning or Notification in severity. Critical alerts have the highest severity because of the nature of its impact. Muted alerts and alerts with severity as Notification are not displayed on the Recent and Older tabs. 

Recent tab 

Recent tab is the active tab when you access alerts on the Manage Alerts page. Only those alerts which are Critical in severity or were generated within the last 14 days are displayed on this tab. 

Older tab 

Alerts with severity as High or Warning that were created 14 days ago or before are displayed on this tab.

The details displayed in each column on the Recent and Older tabs are as follows:

Time:

Date and time when the last alert was generated. Since inSync does not generate new alerts for the same issue, the alert date and time is updated with the latest instance of the alert. If the alert, however, is active and unresolved for at least 14 consecutive days, it is moved to the Older tab. Alerts with severity as Critical are always displayed on the Recent tab.
Alerts having same severity are sorted in descending order of time.

Severity: Displays if the alert severity is Critical, High or Warning. Critical alerts are sorted at the top followed by High and Warning respectively on the Recent tab.
