It seems I have problem with alerting / notifications or perhaps a misunderstanding of the concept of alerting.
My librenms is up for about 2 years right now. With the daily update working fine. I monitor about 200 devices via snmp, mostly servers under linux and windows.
I have the standard alert rules (up/down device, storage, up/down services, …)
Since the new alert system / template update, I think the mail notifications is quite broken here.
Here is what I would like to do and it’s not working :
- send an alert to sysContact of a device matching any common rules (up/down device, storage, up/down service,…), I haven’t define any transport for those rules.
Things that are working :
- specific rule map to a specific device or group of device and associated with a transport.
Issue alerts to sysContact is ON in General Alert Settings
Override sysContact is checked under Alert Settings of the device with an email address in the field.
Updates to contact email addresses not honored’ is set to OFF in the WebUI.
./scripts/test-alert.php -r 1 -h 269 -d : https://p.libren.ms/view/6dfb4ebc : alert is only sent to the default contact
According to the doc
The contacts will always include the
SysContactdefined in the Device’s SNMP configuration
How can I debug that part ?

I hope I am quite clear…
