Working with Triggers and Notifications

You can create notifications to send email or pages, create SNMP traps, or execute arbitrary commands in response to an event. Notifications also can be used to notify other management systems, and to execute arbitrary commands to drive other types of integration. How and when a notification is sent is determined by a trigger, which specifies a rule comprising a series of one or more conditions.

To set up a notification, you must:

  • Create a trigger, selecting the rules that define it
  • Create a notification, selecting one or more triggers that cause it to run
  • Choose appropriate options and subscribers, depending on the notification type
