Monitoring actions are employed in scenarios to automate the process of remotely fixing issues related to downtimes and operational failures. They are required to automatically trigger operations that can prevent operational/system failures and allow to manage the operational environments more closely (especially in the case of problem state response and sensor state alerting).
Actions can trigger operations either on a previously-created set schedule or depending on the result and sensor reaction.
Scenario Builder is used to create actions and assign them to sensors as well as to create unique combinations of sensors and actions. In order to solve an issue by, for instance, shutting down the computer or rebooting certain scripts, all that you need to do is launch the scenario builder, select the network node where the action should take place, and choose the required action type and its parameters. You can also use the task scheduler to set up periodic action execution.
Each action can be tracked in the Activity log as well as in the dedicated reports.
Notifications are employed for an informative purpose, e.g. monitoring state changes, and help to instantly notify of sensor and action results. They are closely connected with actions and provide a real efficiency boost when combined. Notifications may even serve as separate types of actions and extensively beneficial ones at that. Especially in the case where instant access to network operations is required to fix issues in a timely manner. The other benefits are, namely: the diversity of types of monitoring notifications; ability to create mobile notifications and send app or OS logs; reduction of downtimes, which helps to avoid operational failures; sensor notifications, and many more.
Once the checking or action operations are over, according to the event status (either success or error), any number of notifications can be assigned for Actions and Sensors. It is really easy to assign notifications to promptly notify your staff on the results of actions and sensors. Only a few clicks are required to get you there.
