    • the scheduling interval, or how often the state of use of the components occurs
    • The name of the alarm. In fact, it is possible to have multiple alarms for the same host monitoring, for example different notification channels depending on the thresholds of the various alarms. To add an alarm click on the "add alarm" button
    • For each alarm, the thresholds of the various components (at least one) indicating the percentage above which the component is considered in an unhealth status. If you want to add a disk to the control just click on the "+" button.
    • More precisely, to have a component in a default unhealth status it must happen that for 5 consecutive calls of the host monitoring it is in an unhealth status. It will return to health status after 2 consecutive calls in health status. Every change of state will be notified. If you want to change these default settings, you can click on the "advance mode" checkbox to set the consecutive calls that determine the health and unhealth status.
    • the notification channels, which are the emails of the users of the workspace in which the node and the two telegram and slack bots are shared. If you do not want to receive any alerts but only see the results of the host monitoring, it may also not be set.
    Once the fields have been filled in, click on "create Hostmonitoring". If you also want to save it as a template, click the "Create Hostmonitoring and Save Template" button. In this case you will have to enter in the modal that will appear the name of the template you are saving. Responsive image
