7.2. Alert Recipients

Usually alerts are directed towards a recipient. Thus each alert may be additionally configured with one or more recipients. The cluster will call the agent separately for each recipient.

Example 7.2. Alert configuration with recipient

        <alert id="my-alert" path="/path/to/">
            <recipient id="my-alert-recipient" value="some-address"/>

In the above example, the cluster will call for each event, passing the recipient some-address as an environment variable.
The recipient may be anything the alert agent can recognize — an IP address, an e-mail address, a file name, whatever the particular agent supports.
