This documentation mentions features that are currently beta. AppDynamics reserves the right to change the features at any time before making them generally available as well as never making them generally available. Any buying decisions should be made based on features that are currently generally available.
You can configure AppDynamics Server Monitoring - Beta to alert you when certain conditions are met or exceeded based of metrics observed for monitored server hardware. Thecan help you through the process if you're new to using AppDynamics Pro. Alternatively you can create alerting policies manually if you are already familiar with the process.
On the Affects tab of the Health Rule wizard, you choose to apply the Server Health Rule to:
- all or selected subgroups
- all machines in the active account
- machines within selected subgroups
- selected machines
- machines whose names match certain criteria
The health rule is violated when specified critical or warning conditions are met.
Hierarchies, Groups, and Subgroups
- A is in group Data Center 1|Rack 1
- B is in group Data Center 1|Rack 2
- C is in group Data Center 1|Rack 1
Server Policy Actions are triggered when any or select Health Rule Violation Events occur. Unlike Application Policies, Server Policies cannot be based on custom events.
Actions are performed when a health rule is violated and a policy is triggered. Actions can be email or SMS message notifications, HTTP requests or custom actions that have been uploaded to the Controller. There are also email and HTTP request templates for you to use for alert and respond actions.
Email Digests let you send notification of chosen health rule violation events to specific email addresses at a specified frequency, such as every 2 hours.
