Alert Origination for NetBotz Appliances & NetBotz Central

Issue:

Alert Origination for NetBotz Appliances & NetBotz Central

Product Line:

NetBotz
NetBotz Central

Environment:

NetBotz version 1 and 2
NetBotz Central any version

Cause:

Origin of NetBotz alerts.

Resolution:

For all Version 1 (300, 303, 310, 400) and Version 2 (320, 420, 500) appliances, alert notifications that are sent as a result of a threshold being breached, a pod going offline, or an external sensor being unplugged all originate from the NetBotz monitoring appliance itself. This is true even if the appliances are being managed by a NetBotz Central.

If the appliances are being managed by a NetBotz Central, then the alert notification is also sent to NetBotz Central to be kept in the NetBotz Central alert database.

Finally, the only alert notifications that originate from NetBotz Central are:

* Appliance online / offline notifications
* NetBotz Central data purge notifications
* NetBotz Central RAID array notifications (NetBotz Central Enterprise Only)
* NetBotz Central reboot notifications
