What are you planning on doing when clusterid and podid are not relevant?

You have alerts when an SSVM unexpectedly powers off - is that for
every shutdown or only when the last one occurs? Same thing for domR,
if you are running virtual redundant router, do you alert when one or
all go down? In an advanced network, I am not sure that telling me the
'message, zone, pod, cluster is useful information. Why not account?

Also - have you considered making a subset of this available to
end-users - while it may be out of scope for your current work please
design with that in mind. E.g. traps being sent when folks hit
resource limits, VMs fail, etc.
