This marks the end of the chapter. In it, we discussed how the alert system in Orion NPM operates, as well as the basics of building both basic and advanced alerts. I have personally spent a great deal of time configuring some insane alerts because my customers' network environments required it. I'm sure you can see how important configuring alerts for your own network environment can be. Alerts can be extremely powerful, resourceful, and lead you in the right direction in the event of a wide-spread problem. In the next chapter, we will discuss how to produce reports, and network mapping.
