This section describes how Notifications work by alerting and sending emails in case an unexpected event is detected in the load balancer.
The notifications page is divided using two tabs: Alert Services and Email Notifications.
Alert Services allow enabling/disabling notifications for the backends and cluster services.
- Backends. When a Backend goes DOWN or UP, an e-mail will be sent with information related to the corresponding event.
- Cluster. When a cluster event is detected, an e-mail will be sent with information related to the captured event.
Description. A few details explaining what each alert is all about.
Status. Whether a certain notification service is enabled or disabled.
Actions. The different actions for alert services are described below.
- Enable. Activates certain alert services and starts sending email notifications.
- Disable. Deactivates certain alert services and stops them from sending email notifications.
- Configure. Modifies certain alert-service configurations.
