Hi everyone i am using Veeam 9. Plz help me cr8 custom alarm and how to set the counters.

I want to get email notification for the below custom alarms

1. If the datastore IOPS reaches 1000 for any datastore for the past 30 minutes.
ie stack by datastore- datastore I/O - time period 30 min

2. If the datatore IOPS reaches 400 for any VM for the past 30 minutes.
ie stack by VM- datastore I/O - time period 30 min

Plz guide me to cr8 alarms

Sure, you should click on Alarm Management > Datastore > New...
and then in the wizard under Rules > Add... > Rule for specific condition or state > Resource usage is out of range > Pick counter = Datastore IO, Period = 30 min, warning = 400, error = 1000.
And give it assignment = VI.
Thanks!

Hi thanks for the support.

1. For Datastore custom alarm i selected Rule Type: Usage, Counter : Datastore I/O ,Condition Above : Warning: 800 Error: 1000 Time Duation 30 minutes.

2. For Virtual Machine custom alarm i selected Rule Type : Usage, Counter : Datastore I/O, Condition Above : Warning 350 Error : 400 Time Period : 30 Minutes.
Here i can see Exclude Instance What does it mean. in Datastore i did not see ?

Do you mean exclusion rules under "Assignment" tab? For example, you want to apply the alarm to all VMs running on the cluster except 3 of them. So you Add the cluster into assignment and then add those 3 VMs into exclusion.

In this particular case instance means datastore. For example, you want to monitor IOPs for some datastores only which host multiple disks of the same VM.

Sure, you can modify the same or create a new alarm and set the IOPS threshold=1000 with Time Period = 2 Minutes.

In 2 minute interval IOPS can cross 1000 or can come under 1000. i dont want to set this alarm.
if my IOPS are above 1000 for 2 minutes interval i should get alert. During this 2 minute interval if IOPS goes above 1000 and come below 1000 which is not i am looking for.
i.e constant above 1000 for 2 minutes

When i set for 30 minutes i get alerts when IOPS reaches above 1000 and also i get email notification issue fixed when it falls below 1000.

Actually time period should work just like you described.
Are you sure when you set it =30min, it triggers right away when the performance is above the threshold?
Thanks!

Yes it triggers right away when the performance is above the threshold.

i want to set alarm such a way that if it is continuously above the threshold for 2 minutes alert must be generated.(Within 2 minutes if it reaches above and come below below the threshold i dont want the alert) Is it possible to set this kind of custom alarm.

Can you please let our support engineers take a look at the performance data you have in the database? Alarm should only be triggered with its above the threshold for the defined period of time.
