Disabling an alert

Edit the Alert Info > State for each alert definition to control whether the alert dispatches notifications.

You can optionally disable alerts. When an alert is disabled, no alert instances are in effect and Ambari will no longer perform the checks for the alert. Therefore, no alert status changes will be recorded and no notifications (i.e. no emails or SNMP traps) will be dispatched.
  1. In Ambari Web, browse to Alerts.
  2. Browse the list of alert names to find a specifc alert name.
  3. Optionally, you can click an alert name to view the definition details.
  4. In State, click Enabled text to disable the alert.
  5. Confirm the disable action, as prompted.
