Getting automatic email notifications
Get alerts for what you want and when you want.
Monyog can send you alerts over mail or SNMP. Stay on top of significant events and avoid many sleepless nights! Some features of the alerting system are:
- You can also choose to be notified when Monyog detects that a problem, which existed previously, has been resolved.
Note that mails for every registered server are sent independently.
Configuring mail alerts.
What email alerts contain and when is it sent?
The mails are optimized for display in a HTML enabled mail client but also will be readable in a client supporting text mails only.
There is one more detailed rule defining if and when a mail alert is being sent. This rule uses the same three 'Server Modes' (All Time (Current)/Delta - Last two collections/Default sampling timeframe/Custom timeframe') that was explained in the description of the 'Monitors' interface.
The 'MailAlert' and 'AlertCondition' attributes of the various metrics of Monyog have been defined to trigger a Mail Alert in these situations:
- System or MySQL unavailable
- Abnormal 'connections activity' (including hacking/intrusion attempt, faulty application (or user!) etc.)
- Poor hit rates and similar metrics that might severely affect the Server performance. But also this is highly configurable in Monyog.
This is an example of a typical Monyog mail alert.
