Add a new health rule set for an application service

When you configure an application service to the BIG-IQ, the application and its services are monitored by a default health alert rule set. You can create a new health alert rule set to customize the alert notifications for a specific application service.
  1. Go to the Alert Management screen
    Applications
    ALERT MANAGEMENT
    Alert Rules
    .
  2. At the top left of the screen, click the
    Add
    button.
    The New Alert Rule screen opens.
  3. Type a
    Name
    and an optional
    Description
    .
  4. Select the
    Rule Type
    (
    Device Health
    or
    Device Access-health
    ).
  5. In the Metric Conditions area, enable and disable metrics as needed by selecting or clearing the box to the right of the
    Metric
    column.
    BIG-IP devices earlier than version 13.1.0.5 do not collect data that supports metric alerts. Applications that are managed by earlier versions of a BIG-IP device do not receive metric alerts.
  6. Use the Actions area to enable alert notifications by SNMP and Email.
  7. Use the Devices area at the bottom of the screen to view the available devices for the new alert rule set, and move a device from the
    Available
    list to the
    Selected
    list.
    You can filter the device lists by selecting from the
    Filter
    list.
  8. Click
    Save
    at the bottom of the screen, or click
    Save & Close
    to save and return to the Alert Rules screen.
The health and metric rules trigger new alerts according to the saved modifications. This clears active alerts for the associated application, which triggers the Alert Rule Changes alert.
