Create Alert for BIND DNS application

Hi all,

Is there a way to create alerts regarding BIND DNS graphs?


Create an alert when the value of graph located in Applications BIND with name “Server Results” exceed"a number of failures" to trigger an alert.

Thank you.

Yes, you just have to figure out the application metric name. So on the Server Results graph, depending on what you consider “number of failures” (maybe SERVFAIL and NXDOMAIN?) you could look up the metric names in the application graph include files to get their metric names and create alerts on their value.

Possible example…

…would hopeful alert if SERVFAIL OR NXDOMAIN was 10 or more during the polling period.
