The Linux/SSH YUM Update Event Monitor runs 'yum check-update' on systems that support 'Yellowdog Updater, Modified' (yum) and alerts if updates are available. This tutorial will teach you how to configure this event monitor's settings.
To begin, choose the level of alert you want to receive if the SSH server is unreachable.
Next, choose the level of alert you want to receive if updates are available.
If updates have been installed since the last time the event monitor ran, you can choose to be alerted. Select the level of alert you want to receive if this happens.
The next option will send you an alert if any installed updates require a system reboot.
This event monitor can also automatically apply YUM updates while you're away. Check the next box if you want the event monitor to apply updates automatically.
The final two options control what information will be included in the event text generated by the event monitor each time it runs. You can choose to include the list of available updates and/or a list of updates that have been recently installed.
