Set alarm rules

Last Updated: Feb 12, 2018

CloudMonitor offers alarm rule service to notify through alarms on the metric data, if any exception occurs. You can set alarm rules to specify how the alarm system checks the metric data and sends notifications when alarms are triggered.

If you set alarm rules for important metrics you are notified immediately if any metric data exceptions occurs. This helps to troubleshoot the issue in time.


  • Alarm rules have silent period. When exceptions occur, alarms are sent only once in 24 hours to avoid alarm storms.

  • By default, CloudMonitor adds the contact name that you specify while account registration as the alarm contact. Moreover, it creates alarm contact group for that person.
