The Status Alerts tab allows you to view previously generated Status Alerts. A Status Alert is generated when the status of the specified product components matches the alert rule criteria. Use Status Alerts to identify and investigate possible issues with IDERA SQL Compliance Manager operations, such as deployed agents that may have stopped running.
