Notification settings

Setting Description
Enabled Check the checkbox to enable the notification.
Send Clear Send a notification when the problem is resolved by a clearing event.
Send only on Initial Occurrence Send a notification only when the first triggering event occurs.
Delay (seconds) The minimum number of seconds to wait before performing a notification. A delay prevents notifications of transient problems and multiple notifications of the same problem.

For example, if five events that match the trigger occur in 45 seconds, a delay of 60 seconds ensures that only one notification is sent. Also, if a triggering event repeats 15 seconds after the initial event, followed by a clearing event at 45 seconds, a 60-second delay ensures that no notifications are sent.

Repeat (seconds) The interval between repititions of the notification, in seconds. The notifications repeat until the triggering event is resolved.
