Introduction to alarm rules

Last Updated: Dec 27, 2017

You can set alarm rules probe points in site monitoring, instances in cloud service monitoring, and metrics in customized monitoring.

If you are using the alarm rule function for the first time, you must create an alarm contact and then create an alarm contact group, before creating alarm rules for product instance.

Site monitoring alarm rules

You can create alarm rules for the probe points in site monitoring. The statistical cycle of alarm rules in site monitoring is same as the detection cycle of the probe points. That means, when the detection cycle of a probe point is 5 minutes, then the statistical cycle of its alarm rule is also 5 minutes. The system monitors the output from the probe point every 5 minutes to check whether the actual value exceeds the threshold value.

Cloud service monitoring alarm rules

You can set alarm rules for the instances in cloud service monitoring. alarm rules can be set for the metrics of each product.
