If alert rules in the monitor have only two distinct numbers of consecutive failures

If alert rules in the monitor have only two distinct numbers of consecutive failures.

  • The old threshold in the monitor and the numbers of consecutive failures in the alert rules are moved to new WARNING and CRITICAL level thresholds created in the monitor.
  • The smaller number of consecutive failures is moved into the WARNING threshold, and the greater number of consecutive failures is moved into the CRITICAL threshold.
  • All alert rules with the smaller number of consecutive failures are mapped to the WARNING state of the monitor, and all alert rules with the greater number of consecutive failures are mapped to the CRITICAL state of the monitor.

Example: before migration to Alerts 2.0 the user had 5 alert rules in his CPU monitor, 3 of which were set to alert upon 1 failure, and 2 were set to alert upon 4 failures. There were thus just two distinct numbers of failures in the monitor’s alert rules: 1 and 4.

Upon migration to Alerts 2.0:

  • The existing threshold in the monitor’s setting is combined with the smaller number of consecutive failures and moved into a new WARNING level threshold created in the monitor.image12
  • The existing threshold in the monitor’s setting is combined with the greater number of consecutive failures and moved into a new CRITICAL level threshold created in the monitor.

  • Existing alert rules are updated to be mapped to the monitor’s state.

– Alert rules with the smaller number of consecutive failures are mapped to the WARNING state of the monitor.image14– Alert rules with the greater number of consecutive failures are mapped to the CRITICAL state of the monitor.
