4 Trigger severity

Trigger severity defines how important a trigger is. Zabbix supports the following trigger severities:

Not classified Unknown severity. Grey
Information For information purposes. Light blue
Warning Be warned. Yellow
Average Average problem. Orange
High Something important has happened. Light red
Disaster Disaster. Financial losses, etc. Red

The severities are used for:

  • visual representation of triggers. Different colours for different severities.
  • audio in global alarms. Different audio for different severities.
  • user media. Different media (notification channel) for different severities. For example, SMS - high severity, email - other.
  • limiting actions by conditions against trigger severities

It is possible to customise trigger severity names and colours.
