Configure alerts

Last Updated: Jun 11, 2020

You can use the alert service of DAS (formerly known as HDM) to customize alert rules and alert templates. When an alert rule is triggered by a database instance, DAS automatically sends an alert. This topic describes how to configure alerts in the DAS console.

  • Alert rule: defines the alert metrics, trigger counts, and alert methods. For more information, see Configure alert rules.
  • Alert template: a set of alert rules. An alert rule can belong to multiple alert templates. For more information, see Configure alert templates.
  • Alert contact: the recipient of the alert. You can group alert contacts into different alert contact groups. For more information, see Manage alert contacts.
