    Feed health monitoring in Nitro


      Hello all,


      maybe somebody is already using custom Nitro feed health monitoring alerts/correlations, to automatically generate alert or case due to one of the existing data feeds inactivity? Lets say if Nitro receiver doest receive any data in 10-15mins auto generate an alert for analyst for futher troubleshooting reasons or required escalations?


      Would appreciate any ideas/comments.

          Hey J,


          So to first answer your question about ERC events received within a specific time-frame can be setup in the Inactivity Threshold feature.

          But to sort of resolve any other questions you have regarding health status alarms, See the below list for the native Health Status Signature IDs to create alarms from. Let me know if you have any questions.

            So that would be Inactivity signature as there are many signatures related to health status ?


            Thank you.



            • 3. Re: Feed health monitoring in Nitro

              You can also try setting up Alarms using the "Deviation from Baseline" - we monitor the Receivers, ACE, and APM as a whole, and then a few specific high profile devices individually.

              Query on Total Events, Last "X" (Minutes / Hours)

              Specify % Above and % Below

              Finally how often to Check - "X" Hours and "Y" Minutes

                Hi Jacob,


                would you please help me out how to create device health status dash board and how to create health status alarms with the signatures ID's which you shared
