Configure Notifications


The notification panel is the section that will provide suggestions to optimize your cluster.

Notifications are organized into 3 groups: INFOS, WARNING, and DANGER

Each notification comes with a way to address the issue.

How to start my notification panel

By default, notifications are not enabled.

You have to set the cron expression for the property notification.check.cron


For a refresh of notifications every 15 minutes
SET_ notification.check.cron = '0 0/15 * * * ?'

For a refresh of notifications on the last day of the month

SET_ notification.check.cron = '0 0/15 * L * ?'

For a refresh notifications from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.

SET_ notification.check.cron = '0 0 20-8 * * ?'

After that, you can see your notifications in Cluster View

or from the Data View dashboard

How to use my notification panel

Once your panel is enabled, you will notice several types of notifications.

By clicking on a notification, you will be able to see the details and a button to address it.

Once you have resolved a notification, it won't disappear until the notifications are checked again. By clicking on the refresh button, suggestions will be computed again.
