Alerts are triggered by the system when an unusual activity is observed with the network devices on the site. To view the Alerts page, click the Alert () icon that appears on the title bar of the web application when there is a pending alert. The number of alerts in the system is displayed as a colored badge on top of the Alert () icon. The color of the badge determines the severity of the alert present in the system. When there are no alerts present in the system or all the alerts have been acknowledged, the Alert () icon will not appear in any of the title bars on the app or the application.
