Monitor Alarms

You can set up alarms and monitor them in the Health and Wellness interface for the hosts and services in your NetWitness domain. Alarms display in the view as Active when the statistical thresholds for hosts and services have been crossed. Alarms are grayed out and change to the Cleared status when the clearing threshold has been crossed.

You set up the parameters for alarms in Manage Policies. For the related reference topic, see Health and Wellness View - Alarms View.

To monitor alarms:

  1. Go to netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > Health & Wellness.

    The Health & Wellness view is displayed with the Alarms tab open by default.


  2. Click on the alarm for which you want to display details in the Details Panel.
  3. Click netwitness_ic-expand2.png (expand) to view the details for the alarm you selected.
