Adding a notification

To add a notification setting, under Usage, click Notifications.

Click Add Notification. The Create Notification Setting dialog appears.



Can be Data Traffic or Bandwidth.

Data Traffic is the total amount used in the current month

Bandwidth is the 95th percentile of the current month’s usage.


Can be Daily, Weekly, or Monthly.

The frequency determines how often the notification email is repeated, once the threshold has been reached


The threshold value required to trigger the notification, needs to be a whole number.

The unit can be in MB, GB or TB for Data Traffic or in Mbps or Gbps for Bandwidth.

Once all the fields have been entered, click Save to add the new notification.

Multiple notifications can be added for a server. For example, if you add a Monthly Data Traffic notification at 80TB and then add another at 90TB, you will receive a notification email when the first threshold is reached, and then another notification email when the second threshold is reached, no further notifications will be sent that month.
