You can configure thresholds and receive alerts based on aberrations in the behavior of the entities.

You can configure two types of thresholds:

  • Static threshold: If a particular metric value goes beyond or below the configured value, then a static-threshold-based alert is generated.
  • Dynamic threshold: If the threshold is determined by the system based on the analysis of the historical data, an alert is generated in case this threshold is violated. The data is analyzed for a period of 7 days before any alert is generated. The process of creating a baseline is restricted to 21 days of the historic data and the older metric values are not considered to create a baseline for the new metric values.

VMware Aria Operations for Networks generates an alert immediately after a threshold is violated.
