Alerts are small messages that GDS is able to route and process within your network. They are designed to provide quick and easy notification type events, but are not guaranteed delivery. This makes them ideal for monitoring real time conditions on remote systems, but they are not suited to guaranteed transactional requirements; that is handled by standard GDS data writes.
