    Configure Destination Paths

    You can configure a destination path that describes what users or groups will receive notifications, how the notifications will be sent, and who to notify if escalation is needed. A destination path defines a reusable list of contacts that you include in an event configuration.

    To create a new destination path:

    1. Select Network Monitoring > Admin > Configure Notifications > Configure Destination Paths.
    2. Click the New Path button.
    3. Specify appropriate values for the following fields:
      • Name—Specify a name for the destination path.
      • Initial Delay—From the list, select the number of seconds to wait before sending notifications to users or groups.
      • Initial targets—Select the users and groups to whom the event notification will be sent.
    4. Click the Add Escalation button to specify users and groups to whom event notification will be sent.
    5. Choose the commands to use (for example, callHomePhone, callMobilePhone, or callMobilePhone) for each user and group.
    6. Click Next.
    7. Click Finish when you have finished editing the destination path.

    To modify an existing destination path:

    1. Select Network Monitoring > Admin > Configure Notifications > Configure Destination Paths.
    2. Under Existing Paths, select the existing destination path that you want to modify.
    3. Click Edit.
    4. You can make changes to any of the following fields:
      • Initial Delay—From the list, select the number of seconds to wait before sending notifications to users or groups.
      • Initial targets—Add users and groups to whom the event notification should be sent and remove users and groups to whom the event should not be sent.
    5. Click the Add Escalation button to specify users and groups to whom event notification will be sent.
    6. Choose the commands to use (for example, callHomePhone, callMobilePhone, or callMobilePhone) for each user and group.
    7. Click Next.
    8. Click Finish when you have finished modifying the destination path.

    To delete a destination path:

    1. Select Network Monitoring > Admin > Configure Notifications > Configure Destination Paths.
    2. Under Existing Paths, select the existing destination path that you want to delete.
    3. Click Delete.
    4. Click Ok to confirm that you want to delete the selected destination path.

    Configure Path Outages

    You can configure a path outage that describes what users or groups will receive notifications, how the notifications will be sent, and who to notify if escalation is needed. A destination path defines a reusable list of contacts that you include in an event configuration.

    To create a new path outage:

    1. Select Network Monitoring > Admin > Configure Notifications > Configure Path Outage.
    2. Click the New Path button.
    3. Specify appropriate values for the following fields:
      • Critical Path—Enter the critical path IP address.
      • Critical Path Service—From the list, select the ICMP protocol.
      • Initial targets—Select the users and groups to whom the event notification will be sent.
    4. Build the rule that determines which nodes are subject to this critical path.
    5. Select the Show matching node list check box to show the list of nodes that match.
    6. Choose the commands to use (for example, callHomePhone, callMobilePhone, or callMobilePhone) for each user and group.
    7. Click Validate rule results to validate the rule.
    8. Click Finish when you have finished configuring the path outage.
