Play a sound when an alert is fired

Hi all:

Recently I have seen this plugin http://support.hyperic.com/display/hypcomm/HQU+Wall+Mount with "Alarm program for HQU Wall Mount"

Does anyone know any way to play a sound whenever an alert is triggered (without using HQU Wall)?


Thank you

Regards,

Are you wanting a sound to play on the HQ server or on your local desktop?

In the local desktop.

Hi,

Some possible solutions:

The recent alerts portlet has a RSS feed. If you can find a RSS reader that will play a sound when a new item appears in the feed that would work.

You could also have the alerts delivered to a specific mailbox and have a mail reader play a sound when a new message arrives.
