vRealize Network Insight Cloud enables you to set and 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.

The alert is generated immediately after a threshold is violated. The enterprise license users can view the number of Threshold Violations in the What's Happening section of the Home page. To view the alert details, click on the Threshold Violations number. If there are no threshold configurations present in the system, then the What's Happening section shows the +Configure link. You can click the +Configure link to configure the threshold.
