Setting up statistic alarms for the Server Health Monitor

Just as you create an event generator for a Domino® system statistic, you create an event generator for a health statistic. Then when the statistic does not meet the defined threshold, an event is generated.

About this task

For an event to be created, however, you must enable statistic alarms. Then, the first time a statistic alarm is reported, an event is generated and reported to the Monitoring Results database (STATREP.NSF). In addition to an alarm, you can create an event handler to notify you of the event. Event generators and event handlers are stored in the Monitoring Configuration database (EVENTS4.NSF).


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, choose File > Preferences > Administration Preferences.
  2. Click Statistics, and then check Check statistic alarms while monitoring or charting statistics.
  3. For Check alarms every n minutes (greater than monitoring poll interval), enter a value that is greater than the server polling value. The default is 15.
    Note: If you are not sure what the polling value is, click Monitoring and locate the value for Poll servers every n minutes (1-60 mins).
