Statseeker can be used as a comprehensive proactive, and reactive, alerting solution. Alerts can be triggered for:
- Threshold Events - by configuring thresholds for specific metrics you can have Statseeker alert to you when, among other things, your network is experiencing unusual activity or a device is nearing capacity. For more details, see Threshold Configuration.
- Device Events - device level events, such as ping state changes, on any devices monitored by Statseeker
- Interface Events - interface level events, such as ifOperStatus state changes, on any interfaces monitored by Statseeker
- Syslog Events - if your network contains devices that have been configured to output messages to a remote syslog server, then these devices can send those messages to Statseeker. Statseeker can review these logs and use the content to trigger alerts relating to those events.
- SNMP Trap Events - if your network contains devices that have been configured to output SNMP trap messages to Statseeker, then Statseeker can review these messages and trigger alerts based on their content.
