Server alerts are simple E-mail notifications you receive when CPU, RAM, Storage or Server Load on your server exceeds a specific threshold.
Let’s say, If you have a server with 2 cores, and if your 15 minutes server load exceeds 2.00, Your site might get slow. Or, If your storage is full, Your MySQL can go down.
Server Alerts in ServerAvatar allows you to set a threshold to trigger an E-mail notification to you. From our previous example, If you have 2 cores on your server, You can set 15 minutes server load alert at 1.7 so that you can take a quick action before your site or the system slows down.
