Administrators (members of the Global.admin group) can access the Alert Manager page, which allows you to create alerts about various events and conditions.

Before you can create alerts, you must configure Striim to use an SMTP server to send alert emails.

By default, there are three sample alerts: one for when the Striim server's Java VM has less than 1 GB memory left (as per the Java runtime's freeMemory() function), another for when the server's CPU rate is greater than 90%, and a third for when the PosApp sample application crashes. To enable one of these, enter the email address(es) to receive the alerts, set Enable Alert on, and click Save.

The maximum CPU Rate is 100% times the number of cores, so for example with four cores the maximum would be 400%. In that case, 90% would be an inappropriate trigger threshold.
