Click the calendar icon on the top of the screen to configure the Alerts History period. Select the From and To dates. You can also set the maximum number of alerts to be shown by entering the value in the Limit field. Click Done when finished.

Note: Alerts History is not available for more than 30 days. If you try to setup a longer period, the From date will be automatically adjusted to have the alerts history period of 30 days.

Under Fail Locations you can see the locations that uptime, Transaction and Full Page Load monitors (see Uptime Monitoring, Transaction Monitoring and Full Page Load Monitoring) have failed from.

Under Cause you can see the cause of failure. For uptime, Transaction and Full Page Load monitors this is the cause of failure for the location the monitor has failed from. In case the uptime monitor has failed from only one location, or the uptime monitor has failed from multiple locations but due to the same cause, a single common failure cause is shown under Cause. In case the uptime monitor has failed from more than one location and there are different failure causes, they will be grouped under the View Causes link. Click the View Causes link to open a popup showing failure causes for all locations grouped by a common failure cause across locations.

For internal monitors, the Fail Locations field is blank as external locations are not applicable to internal monitoring.

Note: only failures that have triggered sending a Problem Alert are shown (see Alerts). The failure cause shows the same text as in the Problem Alert sent to you.

Under Contacts you can see the contacts that the Problem Alert was triggered to. Similarly to grouping for Cause, if there was only one contact configured to receive alert for the triggered Alert Rule (see Alert Rules), it will be shown under Contacts. Otherwise, in case there was more than one contact configured for the Alert Rule (standalone contacts or a Contact Group), they will be grouped under a single link: the link will show View Contacts for standalone contacts, or the Contact Group (see Contacts) name for a Contact group.

Clicking the link will show the list of all contacts the Problem Alert was sent to.

You can also open any of the monitors shown in the Alerts History by simply clicking a monitor name. The monitor will open in a pop-up window.
