Using a command line editor, view the alert status log on the Ambari server host.

Whether you have configured Ambari to send alert notifications or not, it writes alert status changes to a log on the Ambari Server host. You can view the alert status log using a command line editor.
  1. On the Ambari server host, browse to the log directory.
    cd /var/log/ambari-server/
  2. View the ambari-alerts.log file.
    Log entries include the time of the status change, the alert status, the alert definition name, and the response text.
