Description

Triggers that alert Problems and the Resolutions too frequently can cause a symptom commonly referred to as Alert Flapping. In this lecture I edit the Ok Event Generation properties of a trigger to either delay the OK (Resolved) event for a period of time, or try disabling it and adding the option to manually close the problem. I also demonstrate the option that allow you to choose which severity of events get alerted, and to disable the trigger all together.

If you are experiencing alert flapping and you want to manage it, you will need to manage each trigger individually in order to find that balance of acceptable alert flapping.
