In the Alerts section of the Redis Enterprise Software database page, you can designate which database events will trigger alert notifications.
For instructions on configuring alerts at the cluster level, refer to Managing cluster alerts.
Some alerts can only be turned on or off, such as Periodic backup failed. Some alerts require setting a threshold, such as Dataset size has reached a certain percentage of its limit.
Configured alerts appear in the database Status field, in the Log page, and can also be sent by email.
