This page allows you to see all the notifications that FusionReactor has raised. Notifications are messages from FusionReactor's various subsystems that alert you to conditions which require attention, or are otherwise abnormal.
The amount of unread notifications can be seen as an icon on the Notifications tab at the top menu in FusionReactor that will look like this:
Notifications are color coded according to severity. A blue icon indicates an unread Info notification. An orange icon indicates an unread Warning notification, and a red icon indicates an unread Error notification.
For a detailed view you can navigate to this page by clicking on the Notifications drop down menu at the top of the page and then clicking on Notifications, or by clicking on a server in the Enterprise Dashboard page and then clicking on Notifications. Notifications are presented in a table with the following headings:
The subsystem or plugin which raised the notification.
The date and time the notification was created.
|Severity||The type or urgency of the notification. There are three severity types: Info, Warning and Error.|
A succinct title, usually containing a summary of the condition.
A more verbose message. This may contain actions required to relieve the abnormality.
There are three global functions in the notifications page, represented by three buttons.
Mark All Read
Marks all notifications read. They will not appear as New Notifications in the TOC indicator, nor will they appear in the Enterprise Dashboard (for customers with applicable licenses).
Mark All Unread
Marks all notifications as unread. They will appear as New Notifications in the TOC indicator, and will appear in Enterprise Dashboard.
Removes all notifications completely.
All buttons will be disabled when they have no logical function; for example if all notifications are unread, Mark All Unread will be disabled.
Since the Notifications list updates dynamically, there will be a short delay (on average 2.5s) until the page updates after a button press. In the meantime, the button text is changed to "Wait..." to indicate that FusionReactor has received and processed the request, but that the effect hasn't been reflected in the page yet.
Notification information is also sent to the Enterprise Dashboard. The cube icon will display a red badge whenever any new notifications are available, and the count of new and total notifications for each monitored server is displayed in the information block.
