Event Alerts

Page last updated:

This documentation describes Event Alerts.


As an admin, you might want to receive notifications about important events that occur on your system. The Event Alerts service gives you the option to set up alerts for a variety of events. You can use this service to subscribe to notification topics—notable events that might occur. Notification topics are monitored by publishers—VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) components that emit events. You can send these notifications using email, Slack, or webhook integration.

For example, you can subscribe to a topic from Healthwatch that sends a notification when the memory use on a specific VM reaches a certain percentage.

TAS for VMs users with admin permissions can run event alert commands and subscribe to alerts. Admins can configure event alerts using the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) tool.
