CloudMonitor allows you to configure threshold-triggered alert rules for common service metrics and attack events of Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium. The common service metrics include the volume of traffic for an Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium instance and the number of connections for an Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium instance. The traffic and connection metrics can be measured at the IP address level. The attack events include blackhole filtering events and traffic scrubbing events. After you configure a threshold-triggered alert rule, CloudMonitor reports an alert when the rule is triggered. This way, you can handle exceptions and recover your business at the earliest opportunity.

CloudMonitor is a service that monitors Internet applications and Alibaba Cloud resources. For more information, see What is CloudMonitor?.
