New to EPA: Could use help with alerting on failures

Hi, I would like to report on random, non-pollable events, such as a backup failure, and have an alert generated. I would also like to pass the details of the failure, possibly an entire paragraph’s worth. What is the best way to do this with Wily/EPA? I know there are ‘events’, but it doesn’t seem like you can generate alerts based on events. Also, I know there a metric type called StringEvent, but again, you cannot alert on these, nor have them included in the alert text. Is there a recommended/standard way for doing this? Thank you very much for reading this. -Thomas
