At present we have global/default alarms set for CPU Utilization, Memory Utilization and FilesystemCapacity.
I want to find out how I can set individual alarms for an individual monitored host.
For example, currently we get a warning alarm if CPU Utilization goes above 80% and/or if Memory Utilization goes above 80% and/or if a FileSystem Capacity goes above 70% capacity. We have some monitored hosts which these global alarms are not satisfactory for. For example, I may have host1 which I would like the CPU alarm set to 95% because it always has high utilization so 80% is too low. I may have host2 which has a C: drive which is usually between 70%-80% capacity so I would like the Filesystem alarm for it set to 85%. And I may have host3 which consistently runs at 80%-90% CPU utilization so I would like the CPU alarm set to 95%. As well as setting different alarm rule conditions on an individual monitored host basis we also have the need for a group of servers to have the same alarm rule conditions.
For example, I may have host10, host11, host12, host13, host14 and host15 which all are webservers and usually perform around the same as each other. In this case Id like if possible to see if I need to setup individual alarm rule conditions for each monitored host as I was asking about in the previous paragraph or is it possible to assign an alarm threshold for these group of 5 monitored hosts.
In both cases above, individual monitored host alarms or group monitored host alarms, I also need to find out how I can have the alarms send an email to a specific list of people. For example, I know how to set a rule such as Capacity to send to a different email address list than say the rule for CPU Utilization. But how do I set a different email address list for a specific monitored host?
For example all Capacity Rule alarms currently go to me, so how can I set exceptions so that if the Capacity Rule alarm being triggered is for hos
