Viewing the Alert Status Log

Whether or not Ambari is configured to send alert notifications, it writes alert status changes to a log on the Ambari Server host. To view this log:


  1. On the Ambari server host, browse to the log directory:

    cd /var/log/ambari-server/

  2. View the ambari-alerts.log file.

  3. Log entries include the time of the status change, the alert status, the alert definition name, and the response text:
