CPU Utilization Use the CPU Utilization alert to monitor processor utilization on a computer or across a group of computers. If a device has more than one CPU, you can configure the alert to check utilization of either an individual or all CPUs. CPU Utilization is measured as a percentage of the whole. An alert is triggered when the Usage threshold is breached and held for the specified Duration.
Memory Usage Use the Memory Usage alert to monitor computer memory utilization on a computer or across a group of computers. Memory Usage is measured as a percentage of the whole. An alert is triggered when the Usage threshold is breached and held for the specified Duration.
Free Disk Space Use the Free Disk Space alert to monitor the space remaining on a defined disk drive on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when free disk space falls below the defined minimum as expressed in MB or as a percentage of the total size of the disk.
Folder Size Use the Folder Size alert to monitor the total size of a particular folder on a computer or across a group of computers. The Folder path must be the same on each computer in a group. If the Folder path is invalid for a given computer, then the alert will be ignored for that particular device. An alert is triggered when the folder size exceeds the maximum size (measured in KB, MB, or GB).
File Size Use the File Size alert to monitor the total size of a particular file on a computer or across a group of computers. The File path must be the same on each computer in a group. If the File path is invalid for a given computer, then the alert will be ignored for that particular device. An alert is triggered when the file size exceeds the maximum size (measured in KB, MB, or GB).
Computer (Online/Offline)

Use the Computer alert to monitor the availability of computers in your account. An alert is triggered when a particular computer goes offline and stays offline for the specified Duration or comes online and stays online for the specified Duration.

Tip: Are you seeing Computer Online alerts but no Computer Offline alerts? This can happen when a machine in the alert package loses connectivity but does not stay offline for the Duration specified in the Computer Offline alert.
Application Use the Application alert to monitor the activity of a particular program on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when an application starts, stops, or crashes. Define the application name. The full path to the executable file is not required. If the application is not found on a given computer, then the alert will be ignored for that particular device.
Service Use the Service alert to monitor the activity of a particular service running on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when a service stops or crashes. Define the full name of the service. If the service is not found on a given computer, then the alert will be ignored for that particular device.
Event Windows hosts only. Use the Event alert to monitor event code activity on a computer or across a group of computers. This rule will alert when an event log entry that matches the specified criteria is written to one of the standard Windows event logs. You can define multiple event source, event category or event identifiers to look for, and you can also define exceptions. You can use wildcards where text can be entered: the asterisk (*) will match any substring while the question mark (?) will match any single character.
Hardware Inventory Use the Hardware Inventory alert to monitor changes to hardware components on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when the selected component is added or removed, as defined.
Software Inventory Use the Software Inventory alert to monitor changes to software components on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when a component is installed or uninstalled, as defined.
System Inventory Use the System Inventory alert to monitor changes to Windows profiles, Local Users, and settings on a computer or across a group of computers. An alert is triggered when the selected system component is added or removed, as defined.
