Manage alerts using the GUI

This page describes how to manage alerts using the GUI.
Using the GUI, you can:

View alerts

The bell icon on the top bar indicates the number of existing active alerts in the system. The alerts pane in the system dashboard also provides the name of the alerts.
If there are no alerts (active or muted), the alerts pane is empty, and the bell does not specify any number.

Mute alerts

If for any reason, it is not possible to resolve the root cause of an alert in a reasonable time and you want to hide it temporarily, you can mute the alert for a specified period. Then later, you can unmute the alert and resolve it.
The system automatically unmutes the muted alerts after the expiry period.
Procedure
  1. 1.
    On the Active Alerts page, select the bell next to the alert.
  2. 2.
    Set the mute duration (number and units) and select Mute.
The muted alert is moved to the Muted Alerts area. The total number of active alerts is deducted by the number of muted alerts.
