Create alerts to notify users and trigger automation

The platform's alerts feature enables you to track and act upon changes in your cloud environment. To configure Alerts do these steps:

...

  1. Remember to go to Monitoring and fetch metrics. See VM monitoring and metrics

...

Go to Alarms. Create alarms for built-in metrics, scaling group metrics, and custom metrics as required

  1. To create alarms, go to an Alarms tab in either the Virtual datacenters view (see Manage cloud alarms) or the Infrastructure view (see Infrastructure Alarms).

  2. Select an entity, a metric, and a metric statistic and enter a threshold, then save the alarm

Cloud bursting

You can perform cloud bursting with the platform's Control features. Cloud bursting is automatically deploying new resources in any part of your hybrid cloud environment to meet a peak in demand for resources. Here is a brief outline of how to configure cloud bursting with VM automation.

...

  1. To optionally use VPNs between VDCs (see Connect virtual networks with VPNaaS), use networks with different addresses, e.g. the default network and a custom network set as the default, see Manage Networks

...

  1. Remember to enable metrics. See VM monitoring and metrics.

...

Define scaling groups for VMs. The base VM can be deployed or undeployed. See Manage Scaling Groups

...

Create alarms for built-in metrics, scaling group metrics, or custom metrics. See Custom Metrics Resources.  To work with auto-scaling, we recommend that you create alarms for both the high threshold, when you will require more resources, and the low threshold, when these resources can be retired

  1. To create alarms, go to the Alarms tab in either the Virtual datacenters view (see Manage cloud alarms) or the Infrastructure view (see Infrastructure Alarms).

  2. Select an entity, a metric, and a metric statistic and enter a threshold, then save the alarm
