Once an alert is built, it can be tested. To test an alert, click on the Test Alerts button in the Basic Alert Manager or Advanced Alert Manager to open the Test Fire Alerts window. First, you need to choose what you want to test fire the alert against. Choose a node, an interface on a node, or a volume. Second, choose the alert you wish to test. Last, click on the Test Alert Trigger button to test fire the alert. If there were any issues or errors with a test fire, click on the View Alert Error Log button for information on why the alert failed.
