Modify the default application alerts

You can monitor your applications service's status based on the status of its connected objects and traffic performance metrics. The rules for triggering an alert from your application service can be adjusted based on your monitoring needs. For more information about the performance metrics per application service, see
About application alerts
  1. Go to the Alert Management screen
    Alert Rules
  2. Click the alert rule name.
    This opens the alert rule's properties screen.
  3. View the Metric Conditions area at the center of the screen, which displays the current metrics and thresholds for the default application alerts rule.
    By default, all the metrics are enabled.
    BIG-IP devices earlier than version 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.
  4. To disable, or enable metrics, click the check box to the right of the metric column.
  5. To adjust the Warning and Critical threshold values for enabled metrics, specify a different value for the metric in the appropriate fields.
  6. In the Events area, you can enable or disable status alerts for application objects.
  7. Use the Actions area to enable alert notifications by SNMP and Email.
  8. Click
    at the bottom of the screen, or click
    Save & Close
    to save and return to the Alert Rules screen.
The metric rules trigger new alerts according to the saved modifications. This clears active alerts associated with this rule set, and triggers an Alert Rule Changes alert.
