Mobile alerting with tracking & escalation for NetApp Cloud Insights
Net App Cloud Insights is a hybrid monitoring service capable of monitoring not only on-prem servers but also Azure and AWS installations. Performance monitors are easy to configure, and notifications channels are configured with just a few clicks. SIGNL4 ensures that all on duty members receive, acknowledge and resolve critical alerts, all from their smartphones. With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended. SIGNL4 also offers ad-hoc collaboration between team members for each alert, so Subject Matter Experts can be looped in to help resolve issues.

Set the alert policies to alert on first occurrence.
The next time the threshold is breached an email will be sent out to the SIGNL4 team.
