Alerts expose potential issues with your next-generation
To help you maintain the ongoing
health of your devices and avoid business-disrupting incidents, generates
alerts based on one or more issues that it has detected with your
firewall deployment. These issues, or events, are triggered
in one of three ways:
When a metric changes significantly
When a previously generated event changes
When the user or system performs an action, such as acknowledging or
closing an alert
An alert indicates a specific problem
(degradation or loss of firewall functionality) that needs to be
addressed. Alerts can also be generated based on correlation or
aggregation across multiple events. This aggregation of events into
a single alert helps triage, streamline alert hand-off between teams,
centralize critical information, and reduce notification fatigue.
fall into different categories depending on the metric with which
they are associated. You can use alert categories to specify the
kinds of alerts for which you receive notifications:
Problems with the physical machinery of the device,
such as fan or power supply issues.
Configuration objects, such as security rules, profiles,
and address groups, are reaching their limit and may prevent a commit
on the device.
System resources, such as CPU, memory, and session
information storage, are reaching their limit. Depending on the
specific issue, this can slow system performance or network throughput.
