About Alarm Triggers

Each broker watches all domain events and reported metrics and fires alarms based on its view of the domain.

Statistical alarms based on metrics do not retrieve the metrics data from the nuodb_system database. They are based on the last known values reported periodically either by the operating system or by NuoDB database processes. Database processes (TEs or SMs) as well as brokers report simple statistics/metrics every n seconds. Each broker then aggregates statistics from all hosts in a given database into a database aggregate. The domain then aggregates all statistics for all databases into a single domain aggregate.
