- You can then check what has happened since the last check in the system. Use the Open Alerts monitoring view to see if there have been yellow or red alerts (warnings or problems). If you choose an alert in this view by double clicking it, the system displays the Alert-Browser. This displays all alerts that have not yet been analyzed in a flat hierarchy.
- After you have analyzed an alert and taken the necessary action, set it to Completed to remove it from the display of open alerts.
