In VMware vRealize Operations Manager, alerts and actions play key roles in monitoring the objects. Types of AlertsDifferent types of alerts are triggered on a certain object. Configuring AlertsWhenever there is a problem in the environment, the alerts are generated. You can create the alert definitions so that the generated alerts tell you about the problems in the monitored environment. Configuring ActionsActions are the ability to update objects or read data about objects in monitored systems, and are commonly provided in vRealize Operations Manager as part of a solution. The actions added by solutions are available from the object Actions menu, list and view menus, including some dashboard widgets, and can be added to alert definition recommendations.
