I can only see performance and backup alerts in XOA. How do I get alerts/alarms for health related events?
For example, I would like to know when "the bad things" happen in my environment, such as... Network configuration issue... Multipath Alert... Bond status... etc.
I see in XCP-ng Center that it raises Alerts for these type of events, and can send emails too... however I believe I need to leave the software running for this to work? If I close the app, log off the machine, or it reboots for updates or something, then I no longer have email alerts for these important health events... is that correct?
I'm not sure XOA has alerts like this built in right now, would be nice to have though. I think the critical ones are in there, like you said, backup and perf alert, but would be nice to have some additional ones that can be tuned.
I do think for a lot of network related things though the XOA VM might also lose connectivity and not be able to alert right?
Either way, I think this is a good feature request of sorts.
I have done some more testing with this.
I am able to generate test alerts/alarms from the xcp-ng cli:
xe message-create pool-uuid=<my-pool-uuid> name="More Test" body="More Test Message. Very Message. Much Test." priority=3
I found that if I use XCP-ng Center and configure a pool to send email notifications, that configuration is saved to each host in the pool - the email alerts are sent even when XCP-ng Center application is no longer running. I get the notifications that I am after.
As I am instructing my engineers to move away from using XCP-ng Center and instead do everything via XOA, it would be great if this pool-wide alert email notifications configuration can be achieved using XOA.
