Below is a list of the types of event notifications that you can use for a PingPlotter Cloud alert.
- When Alert conditions start - The first time alert conditions occur, the event will happen and won't be repeated while in the alert state. This is a popular use – as you find out about new conditions when they happen, but don't have to be bothered again. As soon as the alert condition stops being met, and then it starts again, this event will reoccur.
- When Alert conditions end - This happens when network conditions improve so that the alert is no longer firing. As soon as the conditions move from bad to good (based on your settings), then this event will happen. One example of this is setting up a Send an Email alert to fire when conditions go bad (see above) and then when they improve again – but not to tell you anything in between.
- Each time alert conditions are met - The event will happen each time the conditions are met. This means the event will happen over and over again on each sample that causes the alert to fire.
- Each time alert conditions are not met - This is the exact opposite of the previous event. As long as things are good on the network, this event will fire each time a sample is collected.
