Ops Manager issues alerts for the database and server conditions configured in your alert settings. When a condition triggers an alert, you receive the alert at regular intervals until the alert resolves or Ops Manager cancels it. You should fix the immediate problem, implement a long-term solution, and view metrics to monitor your progress.

You can retrieve events for a specified organization or project using the Events API resource.

When you acknowledge the alert, Ops Manager sends no further notifications to the alert's distribution list until the acknowledgment period has passed or until you resolve the alert. The distribution list receives no notification of the acknowledgment.

If the alert condition ends during the acknowledgment period, Ops Manager sends a notification of the resolution.

If you configure an alert with PagerDuty, a third-party incident management service, you can only acknowledge the alert on your PagerDuty dashboard.

You can undo an acknowledgment and again receive notifications if the alert condition still applies.

You can turn off alerts for a given process. This might be useful, for example, if you want to temporarily disable the process but do not want it hidden from monitoring. Use the following procedure both to turn alerts off or on.
