Configuring Alerts

You can configure several types of alerts:

  • Operational alerts for APIs through API Manager

  • Operational alerts the runtime through Runtime Manager

  • Alerts for graphs in custom dashboards in Anypoint Monitoring

Setting Up API and Runtime Alerts

From Alerts in Anypoint Monitoring, you can link out to configuration pages for API and Runtime alerts.

API and Runtime Alert Setup

For guidance with alerts in Runtime Manager, see About Configuring Alerts using Runtime Manager

Setting up Alerts for Graphs in Custom Dashboards

In Anypoint Monitoring, you can set up alerts to trigger email notifications when a data point you are measuring (JVM - CPU % Utilization) exceeds a specified threshold.

You can create alerts through an Alerts configuration tab for any graph in a custom dashboard.

Alert Configuration

To Configure an Alert

  1. Navigate to the configuration screen for a graph in a custom dashboard. For guidance, see Configuring Custom Dashboards.

  2. Provide a General configuration for the graph that (at minimum) defines the metric, environment, and resource for which you want to set the alert. For guidance, see General Settings.

  3. Navigate to the Alert configuration tab for the graph.

  4. Click Create Alert.

  5. Use Alert Config to configure the alert. See Alert Config.
