Alerts can be run on a per user basis, or as part of a service which will run all alerts for all users.
- Per User: Users can run alerts by going to the query's Profile link, and clicking the Alerts tab. Users can either run all the alerts they have created or individual alerts. Clicking Run All Alerts executes all of the listed alerts at once. Each alert also has a run alert link which allows the user to run that specific alert. Both of these methods will run the alerts independently of the chosen frequency and when the alert was last run.
- All Users: The administrator can run all alerts in one of two ways: running the alert service manually or scheduling the alert service to run using the Scheduler. All alerts will run on a per-user basis in the alloted number of threads. Only alerts that have not been executed for the chosen amount of time will be run.
