About alert management

Alert management shows a consolidated view of device health across your network. You can view health by network layout, organizational group, or by directly monitoring the list of received alerts in the Event Console.

The Event Console reduces the need to maintain separate tools to monitor computers, software, printers, and other devices. The Event Console collects SNMP traps and other status messages and displays them in a single location. All status messages are converted to a common format that links each received message to the affected resource in the CMDB. These formatted messages are called alerts.
