Veeam Alarms resolved

Post by Wolverine » Jul 23, 2014 7:23 am

Hi Guys,

I am noticing that most of the alarms on Veeam One resolve themselves whereas others don't. For instance; I had a VM total disk latency alarm and a few minutes later it changed status to resolved while I was trying to figure out what was wrong. As a newbie in this environment; what would be an ideal way to monitor alarms on Veeam One? Accept my apologies if this has been posted on the forum already but I am also trying to dive in as quick as I possibly can.

Thanks in advance for your assistance and guidance.

Hi Lazarus,
There are two types of alarms: event-based and performance. Performance alarms can "resolve themselves" if referred value returns under the preset threshold. Event-based alarms can be automatically resolved only if you have resolve events, otherwise you need to do it manually.

Response time for read and write operations changes constantly. In some period the value can exceed configured threshold, in some not, it`s a performance alarm. You can find out what caused the alarm appearance by checking related events happened at the same time.

It pretty much depends on your needs and capabilities.
Veeam ONE consists Alarm Management for a comprehensive, flexible control. You can also consider the most critical alarms and set email notifications.
