Alerts are used to notify interested parties when a job fails to complete successfully or when the space for a database reaches a specific threshold.
The Alerts tab in the Edit Jobs view displays a summary of existing alerts, including their enabled status and their type: job or space. In this tab, you can edit, delete, and add alerts.
Alerts created in the Performance Data Collection portlet can be displayed in the Alert Viewer portlet. This portlet displays alert type, severity, source, duration, error messages, and the action taken when the alert is triggered. The option to view Performance Data Collection alerts in the Alert Viewer portlet is set in the Alert Setup portlet.
