Trigger IT automation on a monitoring event



I am looking for leveraging the IT Automation feature for an auto remediation setup.

For that i am looking for the functionality of triggering IT automation automatically on a monitoring event(eg: when disk space utilization more than 90%, auto trigger a IT Automation to clean some log files from the server)

Re: Trigger IT automation on a monitoring event

Hey there, 

   To leverage our IT Automation feature here's what I recommend you to do. Assuming you have your server agent running in the server that you want to automate and created a script that will cleanup log files from your server, 

1. Add an IT Automation of type server script. In the client navigate to Admin (left menu) > IT Automation > click add Automation button.

2. Give the path in which the script resides and save the automation by giving it a meaningful name. Leave the "Select Hosts for Server Script Execution" as $localhost so that you can apply this automation for any server.

3. Navigate to your server > edit the configuration of the server clicking on the hamburger icon > edit your server's threshold profile > In the Threshold Profile of your server, apply the automation for Disk Utilization Threshold and save it.

Henceforth, whenever the server's disk utilization threshold crosses 75% for 5 polls your automation will automatically be executed. You can apply as many automations as you want for a single attribute.

These steps apply to any attribute you configure for any type of monitor.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jasper!!! It is really helpful. 

One more question in continuation to this is, How to add a automation for an event for website url monitoring?

eg: If the url's response time is high, then i have to restart the tomcat or apache service.
