Please restart your Hyperic server and try again to set an Alert.
To set an alert on a resource when it goes down please do the following:
- Choose a resource from Resources tab
- Go to Alert tab
- Click configure --> New
- In the condition set choose metric 'Availability' less than 100%
Thank a lot , i found the problem again after restarting the server, but it was fixed after deleting the platform and re-adding it again, is there is any documents regarding the alerts? also i tried to restart the machine and nothing shows up regarding this alert, i want also to test the email functionality, i have a running MTA on the server and working fine.
