Sending notification to Hinemos Manager server via email

Hello.

This article will introduce you to the Mail Notification — one of Hinemos Notification Features.
We will show you how it works by sending notification of ping monitor and command job execution results to a server (CerntOS7.5) where Hinemos Manager is installed via email.

< What is Mail Notification? >
Mail Notification is a feature that sends notification of various monitoring and job execution results via email.

< Prerequisites >
・Hinemos Manager is installed
・Hinemos Client is installed *1
・Hinemos Agent is installed *2

*1 Both Web Client and Rich Client works
*2 Installing Hinemos Agent is not required to use Mail Notification. We will be using Hinemos Agent for the Job feature only.

First, install “mailx-12.5-19.el7.x86_64.rpm“ by executing the following command.
(root@~) # yum -y install mailx.x86_64

< Configuration >
■Step 1-1: Create a mail notification
First, create a mail notification as shown in the image below.

This time, Hinemos is set to send notification of all priority levels, from “Information”, “Warning”, “Critical” to “Unknown”, via email.
If you wish to get it to send an email only when “Critical” is output, check the checkbox for “Critical” only.
Also, use “root@localhost” as the email address.

■Step 2-1: Create a ping monitor and a command job
Next, create a ping monitor and a command job as shown in the images below.
Make sure to specify the mail notification created in Step 1-1 in the Notification ID field.

< Execution results >
Check the result of ping monitor first.

The resulting output in the Monitor History [Event] view of the Monitor History perspective is shown below.

The detail of the email received in the environment where Hinemos Manager is installed is shown below.

Next, check the result of job execution.
The resulting output in the Monitor History [Event] view of the Monitor History perspective is shown below.

The detail of the email received in the environment where Hinemos Manager is installed is shown below.

You can confirm the ping monitor and job execution results were sent via email successfully!

< Summary >
That is it for the brief introduction to the mail notification feature.
The mail notification works with other monitors settings other than ping monitor, so feel free to try them out.

Next time, maybe we will introduce you to how to send emails to mail servers in a different environment.
Thank you for reading!
