Alert definition in config file
#1
Hi
I currently deploy pandora config file to all the new servers and they start working well. However, I cannot find a way to also define alerting rules in the configuration file, so I do this manually. I'm sure there is a better way to do this.

What is the preferred approach for a simple use case like installing a new server and wanting to get alerts when a disk is going full? Server installation and pandora config on the client side are handled with ansible, but what about alerting?

Hope this is clear and sorry if this is somewhere in the documentation where I cannot find it.

Regards
Andres

Hi Andres123,

The alerts are created/assigned to the modules through the Pandora console, the alerts have to be created manually, then you can do bulk operations with alerts.

Hi
Thank you for your answer, but I do not seem to be much closer to understanding what I should or can do. 

If I add a new server with a similar configuration as some previous servers and with pandora client configuration, then do I need to add alerts for this particular server manually or is there a way to teach pandora server that particular modules should get alerts automatically? I have existing templates, actions, and commands in place, this is not the question.

Best regards
Andres

So after some digging, I found the place where I can do bulk operations, but this still leaves the question of if/how new servers can get automatic alerts, unanswered.

Hi Andres123,

If you want to pass the alerts from the server to another server you have to extract the alerts from the database and insert them into the database of the another server.

Hi

Sorry about the confusion, by server I meant "agent" in pandora's terminology. Adding a new monitoring server is something I have not asked about, here.

But my current understanding is that whenever a new "agent" becomes active, i.e. a new machine is running in my network, has pandora client installed and configured and sends info to the pandora server, I still need to log in to the server and configure alerts to this new agent manually? Even if in bulk mode, but still?

I honestly do not understand why this is necessary and I hope I am wrong. In the era when you may need to add or remove nodes from your cluster regularly.

Hi Andres123,

When you install an agent of pandora in a new computer, the pandora agent create several modules automatically, but if you want to put some alerts in this agent, you must do it manually, one by one or through policies.
