VitalSigns Alerts & Notifications
You can create alert definitions to receive a variety of alerts (i.e. dead mail, not responding, disk space low, etc.) pertaining to the overall status of your environment.
IT Managers can configure alerting options such as: Advanced Alerting, Persistent Alerts, Alert Limits and SNMP Listeners from the Alert Settings page. Email Alerting, SMS/Text Alerting and Recurring Alert Options can also be configured with the Alert Settings page.
All scripts and commands can be managed from the Alerts Scripts page where IT managers can add new scripts, edit existing scripts as well as delete existing scripts.
The Alerts History page provides a detailed view of all alerts that were created, sent, and cleared. The Notification Sent Date indicates when the alert was sent (if applicable) and the Event Dismissed Date indicates when the alert/issue was resolved.

See What a VitalSigns User Has to Say
Before we purchased VitalSigns our organization lacked the ability to perform two crucial functions: to assist with monitoring journal databases which is essential for compliance requirements and to proactively alert on all of our critical IT systems.
One of the main reasons we started using VitalSigns was so that the Administrators could be alerted when our systems were failing before our users would contact the Help Desk. This allows the Administrators to pro-actively update the Help Desk so that when the user calls it is no surprise, and we can give informed updates back to the users. Overseeing a large IT system 24/7 can be a very daunting task, but it is a lot easier these days with VitalSigns acting as a right hand by always watching our systems and alerting me by email or text if anything abnormal happens.
After purchasing VitalSigns we discovered that the tool would also help our organization with monitoring critical databases, which is a necessary component to our email compliance solution. VitalSigns ability to monitor and alert all the way down to the database level is critical to our requirement for journaling databases. VitalSigns ensures that all items are being processed and that we are meeting our compliance requirements.
