Using Alerts

Once you set up alerts for graphs in custom dashboards, you can enable or disable any of them, filter alerts based on the alert status, and link out to the graph in a custom dashboard that is associated with the alert.

Examples Alerts

Filtering Alerts by Alert Status

You can filter alerts based on status.

Filtering by Alert Status

Alert status filters:

  • All states

  • No data: No data is available in the series to evaluate the alert threshold.

  • Disabled: The alert is disabled.

  • Alerting: The value of the metric is above the threshold.

  • OK: The value of the metric is below the threshold.

  • Pending: The alert is enabled and waiting for evaluation.

Enabling and Disabling Alerts

You can activate or deactivate an alert by toggling the switch on the right.

  • Enabling a disabled alert causes the alert to transition to the Pending state until it is time for evaluation. Depending on the value, the alert will transition to the OK or Alerting state.

  • Disabling an alert causes the alert to transition to the Disabled state.
