Alerts in Alerts 2.0

Alerts in Alerts 2.0 are based on change in the monitor’s state.

The monitor will enter a WARNING or CRITICAL state whenever a WARNING or CRITICAL severity level threshold in the monitor is violated (see Thresholds).

Failure Alerts

If you have set up alert rules on the state change of your monitor to CRITICAL or WARNING (see Alert Rules in Alerts 2.0) you will receive a failure alert whenever your monitor enters the problem state.

The failure alert will show you the violated threshold(s) and the failed metric(s).

Recovery Alerts

 

You will receive recovery alert whenever your monitor recovers from CRITICAL or WARNING state, as detailed below:

    • If alerting was triggered on entering WARNING state:

-The monitor is back to OK state (no WARNING or CRITICAL level threshold in the monitor is violated).
The recovery alert will tell you that the monitor has recovered from failure (you will see the “Recovery” status) and show you the WARNING state duration.
3

  • If alerting was triggered on entering CRITICAL state:

– If the monitor is back to OK state (no WARNING or CRITICAL level threshold in the monitor is violated).
The recovery alert will tell you that the monitor has recovered from failure (you will see the “Recovery” status) and show you the CRITICAL status duration.

-If the monitor has entered from CRITICAL to WARNING state (WARNING level
threshold is violated and no CRITICAL level threshold is violated in the monitor).
The recovery alert will tell you that the monitor has entered from CRITICAL to WARNING state and show you the CRITICAL state duration.4

If Alert Rule is set not on the monitor’s state but threshold

 

Upon migration of your account to Alerts 2.0 some of your existing alert rules may be mapped not to the monitor’s state but to a newly created threshold. These are legacy alert rules that you can change from threshold to state based at any time (see Migration of Existing Alert Rules to Alerts 2.0).

In this case you will receive a failure alert when the threshold (of WARNING or CRITICAL level) is violated and a recovery alert when the threshold is recovered.

Failure Alerts

Failure alerts will have the same format as in case of state based alerting.

Recovery Alerts

Recovery alerts will show the recovered threshold and the failure duration.
