How to configure email notifications for alerts having high repeat count
Hi If you have a repeat count of 25000 for some alerts then you really need to address that issue first. Something is seriously wrong. Even repeat counts of over 1000 are an area of concern. As you say - this will kill SCOM performance. Are these from from a custom rule or an out of the box rule? Either way, why isn't the underlying issue being fixed or the rule disabled? SCOM cannot alert on repeat counts of greater than x. If you are licensed for system center 2012 then you could deploy orchestrator and set up a runbook that would check repeat count and fire an email if it was above a threshold. Without this, you could look to use powershell and run it within task scheduler to do the same. This should help with the PowerShell: http://www.systemcentercentral.com/BlogDetails/tabid/143/IndexID/89870/Default.aspx Regards GrahamRegards Graham New System Center 2012 Blog! - http://www.systemcentersolutions.co.uk View OpsMgr tips and tricks at http://systemcentersolutions.wordpress.com/

Repeat count, is a good indication of issues, but also know that this is a good thing, as when you see repeat count for an old alert that means one table in the ops db is getting modified, compared to creating a new record, which is less performance draining on SQL compared to adding a new item. Having said this, look into the issues, and ask operators to not "clear" these from the console imho.Regards, Blake Email: mengotto<at>hotmail.com Blog: http://discussitnow.wordpress.com/ If my response was helpful, please mark it as so, if it answered your question, then please also mark it accordingly.

Hi, I am currently using SCOM 2007 R2 (cluster setup) running on windows server 2008 .I see lot of alerts are having very high repeat count for example more than 25k for some alerts rules. This really chockes up the Operations manager. i am interested in finding out whether we can configure any email notifications to myself for alerts that have Repeat count >1000 so that i can atleast get to know the issue before it goes out of hands. or is there any best way in getting notfied by generating a reports? Thanks, Rithick.
