How to set the alerts in CLI interface not the web console
Settings(under manage) --> Alerts tab --> Check the box (Enable email Alerts) --> Provide mail information which mail you prefer to receive mails to.
Note : Also you can use test mail
Sorry, my suggestion was about configuring alerts thru the web console not CLI as you requested. Could you please refer to the below link
"http://www.couchbase.com/docs/couchbase-manual-1.8.pdf" --> in section "8.12 - Enabling/Disabling Email Notifications"
