I've searched the forums a bit, but I can't find this. Does anyone know how, or if it's possible, to have a dashboard report that shows the # of alerts over time for a specific view I've created for alerts?
If I understood the question correctly, what you want is to look in the Alerts table for the item in question. The ViewName column will display the view you created for the rules and if you want to see the specific rule that fired then look in the EventMessageID column.
