To designate a set of different alert actions to be performed for an event depending on the time period, define time-specific action sets and assign them to a group.

Suppose you want the alert to provide SNMP notification and send an email message under the following conditions:
  • An SNMP trap when a space-usage threshold is exceeded on a weekday
  • An SNMP trap and an email message sent to the Teradata Database Administrator when the threshold is exceeded on a weekend
To do this, define two action sets:
  • One SNMP notification action for core, evening, and weekend hours
  • One email notification action for weekend hours only

Create a group and assign both action sets to the group. In the Teradata Viewpoint administrative portlet where you want to define the alert, assign the group as the alert action.
