Exadata alerts are generated when a flash disk fails.  The alerts include specific instructions for replacing the flash disk. 

If you have configured the system for alert notifications, alerts will be send by email to the
designated address. Example of the automatic alert is displayed below:

Hardware Alert 87 is triggered at 2010-05-07T09:18:42-04:00 with message:
