If all alert rules in the monitor have the same number of consecutive failures

If all alert rules in the monitor have the same number of consecutive failures.

  • The old threshold in the monitor and the number of consecutive failures in the alert rules, which is the same for all the rules in this case, are moved to a new CRITICAL level threshold created in the monitor.
  • All alert rules are mapped to the CRITICAL state of the monitor.

Example: before migration to Alerts 2.0 the user had 4 alert rules in his Ping monitor, all with the number of consecutive failures to alert upon equal to 2.

There was a threshold set in the monitor’s settings:

Upon migration to Alerts 2.0:

  • The existing threshold in the monitor’s settings is combined with the number of consecutive failures in the existing alert rules and moved into a new CRITICAL level threshold created in the monitor.

image8Only one threshold is created in this case, as the number of consecutive failures is the same across all the existing alert rules.

  • All existing alert rules are updated to be mapped to the CRITICAL state of the monitor.

image9The alert rules will trigger and alerts will be sent whenever any CRITICAL severity level threshold is violated in your monitor (see Thresholds for more info about thresholds).
