Hello,

I would like to setup a email notification to monitor our HDP cluster. Do I need to configure SNMP to send notification\? Can I use without SNMP?

Hi @Anpan K,

SNMP is one of the methods available. In your case you can simply choose "SMTP".

Check the following link which have a step-by-step of how to enable alerts using email:

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.6.2.0/bk_ambari-operations/content/creating_or_ed...

You will need to set-up a SMTP server so that Ambari is aware to where it will send the notification to.

Hope it helps!
