Action Lists

Action Lists are useful for creating a standard notification pattern for monitors. Possible ideas for actions lists:

  • During hours, and after hours notification lists
  • On-call notification list (easily add or remove someone from one list rather than from many individual monitors)
  • Procedures to run for high priority problems
  • Standard procedures for specific problems (IIS being down for example)

Action Lists are normal system actions that can be added to any monitor. The only configuration needed is to add the actions that will be called by this action when it is called.

Configure notification group

For an example monitor below, the action list shown above is assigned to this monitor and many others like it. When any of these monitors detects a problem, they will run all of the actions defined in the "Service Level Agreement Alert" action list.

Configure notification group


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'.
