How Alert Grouping Works

To minimize the number of alerts that appear for a given event or condition, Ultrasound groups related events that occur within a predefined time period. For example, if you successfully deploy providers to fifty servers, only one "Successful deployments" alert appears within a one-week time period. The alert in the Alerts pane shows the number of times the alert has occurred, and you can see the individual alerts that are grouped under a single alert by double-clicking the alert and viewing the Advanced tab of the Alert Details dialog box.

Alert grouping changes in the following scenarios:
