A service providing monitoring and operational tools with shared alert notification capability is being implemented for SEE-GRID infrastructure. This service, called AMS, provides a common solution for delivering alarms to grid site administrators through e-mail, SMS and immediate messaging. AMS receives alerts through a web service interface provided to monitoring and ticketing systems like SAM, Nagios and OneOrZero based tools of SEE-GRID infrastructure. The site administrators configure notification rules by defining message destinations and notification filtering and grouping policies for individual sites and alert categories. Besides putting these rules into practice, AMS offers a web front end for observing related alert and message logs. The usage of AMS should improve response times, reduce message clutter, and centralize notification policies. It can be also used by other related monitoring tools, like those observing the underlying network infrastructure.
