What are Alerts?

Alerts are used to communicate health and uptime degradations. Alerts are designed to be actionable, triggering only when the performance impact is high enough to require action.

Each alert contains the following information:

  • The alert rule that triggered the alert.
  • The time when the alert was triggered.
  • The JVM or service that triggered the violation.
  • The severity/impact of the alert.

Alerts are triggered when the conditions in alert rules are matched. Alerts are sent to alert channels, which you can configure separately.
