Alert notifications can be sent to administrators when significant problems or events occur during processing, such as problems during server startup or shutdown. The server provides a number of alert handler implementations configured with the confined tool, including:
- Error Log Alert Handler
- Sends administrative alerts to the configured server error logger(s).
- JMX Alert Handler
- Sends administrative alerts to clients using the Java Management Extensions (JMX) protocol. The server uses JMX for monitoring entries and requires that the JMX connection handler be enabled.
- SNMP Alert Handler
- Sends administrative alerts to clients using the Simple Network Monitoring Protocol (SNMP). The server must have an SNMP agent capable of communicating via SNMP 2c.
If needed, the Server SDK can be used to implement additional, third-party alert handlers.
