The Send Pager Alert action can send monitor details to an SNPP pager. You will need to get the SNPP server name from your SNPP provider.
Some pager providers have an SMTP gateway. It is often easier to configure an E-Mail Action to send to a pager than the Send Pager Alert action. See the related FAQ about sending SMS alerts.
Pressing the Message button displays the configuration dialog below. This lets you customize the message text that is sent to you with replacement variables. This is most useful for trimming the size of the message that is sent to your pager. You can also rename the action as it shows up in the various action lists. You can reset the action to its original/default name by simply clearing the name field.
If the action should not be used 24/7 you can use the Schedule button to specify when notifications should be sent to the given pager. On off hours the action acts as though it isn't configured at all. The dark green below indicates 'on hours' and the lighter grey specifies 'off hours'.
