Managing Alerts and Notifications

Use customized notifications to communicate important Ambari alerts to the appropriate recipient.

Ambari uses a predefined set of seven types of alerts; web, port, metric, aggregate, script, server, and recovery, for each cluster component and host. You can use these alerts to monitor cluster health and to alert other users to help you identify and troubleshoot problems. You can modify alert names, descriptions, and check intervals, and you can disable and re-enable alerts. You can also create groups of alerts and setup notification targets for each group so that you can notify different parties interested in certain sets of alerts in different ways.
