Lesson 3: Test an alert

In this lesson, you intentionally trigger an alert so you can practice handling alerts.

To view and resolve an alert
  1. Trigger an alert by shutting down the MobiLink Synchronization Server Sample.

    1. On Windows, double-click the MobiLink server icon in the system tray for the MobiLink server.

    2. Click Shut Down in the MobiLink Server window.

    3. Click Yes.

  2. In the Monitor, click the Monitoring tab.

    The State for the MobiLinkServerSample resource changes to Server Down and the Status for the MobiLinkServerSample resource changes to Needs Attention!.

    It can take a few seconds for these changes in state and status to occur. By default, the Monitor collects information from the resource every 30 seconds.

  3. In the bottom pane, click Alerts.

  4. Select the Availability Alert and click Details to read the description.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Restart the Synchronization Server Sample.

    From the Start menu, choose Programs » SQL Anywhere 11 » MobiLink » Synchronization Server Sample.

    The State for the MobiLinkServerSample resource changes to Alive, but the Status remains unchanged. It can take a few minutes for the change to appear.

  7. Delete the alert by selecting the alert and clicking Delete.

    The Status changes to Healthy.
