Viewing Alerts


This functionality is not yet available in the Command Line Interface or REST Manager API administration tools.

To view alerts:

You can view alerts in the Web Management Console Alerts panel, displayed in XAP Alert groups (according to correlation key). Alerts are grouped together by type, such as CPU, Memory, etc. When an alert is triggered, it is aggregated with other consecutive alerts of the same type. A resolved alert closes the aggregation. A new alert of the same type triggers a new aggregation. You can sort the on Status column in ascending order to show the latest unresolved alerts.

  • From the menu bar, click Alerts. The list of alerts in the system is displayed with the following details:
Item Description
Status Severity of the alert (Warning, Severe). Expand the top-level alert to see the recurrences of the alert and if/when it was resolved. A green check mark indicates an alert than has been resolved.
Type Type of alert.
Description Detailed description of the alert.
Location Service grid component where the alert occurred.
Last Update Time that the alert was generated.

The Alert number displayed in the menu bar indicates the amount of currently active alerts.

You can generate a dump file for the alert’s related grid components by clicking the Action icon in the relevant line of the alert list. See Generating Dump Files for information on how to define the dump file contents.


The Web-UI server utilizes the <XAP Root>/config/alerts/alerts.xml configuration file. These configurations apply to any client connecting to the Web-UI at the specified host and port.
