The Tivoli Alerting Plugin enables the ability to push dynaTrace Incident Notifications into Tivoli.

In general, the Tivoli Plugin only executes the denoted Tivoli Executeable with all the denoted settings as parameter.
So it is very important, you have a running Tivoli Endpoint installed on the same machine the Plugin is running.
