How to have Bright 8.x email me when a node goes down?

You can add the following trigger using cmsh on your active head node:

# cmsh 
% monitoring trigger 
% add node_down 
% expression 
% set measurables devicestatus 
% set value down 
% set operator == 
% .. 
% .. 
% set enteractions send\ e-mail\ to\ administrators 
% commit

Now all contacts listed in the Administrator E-mail property in Bright will receive an email whenever a node enters the DOWN status.
Conversely, to have those same people receive an email whenever a node goes back UP:

# cmsh 
% monitoring trigger 
% add node_up 
% expression 
% set measurables devicestatus 
% set value up 
% set operator == 
% .. 
% .. 
% set enteractions send\ e-mail\ to\ administrators 
% commit
