Modify an alert

Edit the configuration properties in each alert definition to modify alert behavior.

General properties for an alert include name, description, check interval, and thresholds. The check interval defines the frequency with which Ambari checks alert status. For example, a 1 minute value means that Ambari checks the alert status every minute. The configuration options for thresholds depend on the alert type.

  4. Click Edit to modify configuration properties succh as description, check interval, and thresholds, as necessary.
    Configuration properties differ for each alert.
