Resend Alert Email Notification

Hello guys,

I’m using Netdata since few month but i’m changing some stuff for the email template. After few changes, i added a server which triggered an alert but i doesn’t receive anything.

Let’s say that i have tested my SMTP and it works fine with a Test email + the test works fine too.
I checked the configuration and it’s not on silent, everything seems to be okay so my question is, how can i trigger again the email sending for the active alerts?

Netdata Agent: 1.42.49

Hi @Nick777

There’s no easy way I’m afraid to re-trigger the alert.

If you would like to test in general if notifications work (aside from testing the script as you said with TEST), you could trigger e.g. a ram available alert using e.g. the following command:

stress-ng --vm-bytes $(awk '/MemAvailable/{printf "%d\n", $2 * 0.94;}' < /proc/meminfo)k --vm-keep -m 1

On my setup this will eat >90% of available ram and will trigger an alert notification. If you don’t receive it, let us know and will try to track down the issue.


Thanks for the answer but seems to be fixed!! Thanks again and have a nice day!
