Cloud monitoring by providing calls to the Ali cloud openapi, the number of errors, the rate of errors, helps users monitor the usage of the Ali cloud openapi, and enables users to set alarm rules on monitoring items. When users use the Ali cloud openapi, cloud monitoring automatically collects data for the above monitoring items.

Monitoring Services

  • Monitoring items

    • Continuous number of times: refers to the continuous number of statistical cycle monitoring items that continue to exceed the threshold value to trigger the alarm.

  • Set single alarm rule
    1. Log in to the cloud monitoring console.
    2. Enter the list of interfaces to the openapi that the cloud service monitors.
    3. Click the Instance name or the monitor chart in the operation to go To the instance monitoring details page.

    4. Click the bell button in the upper right corner of the monitor chart or the new alarm rule in the upper right corner of the page, alarm rules can be set for monitoring items corresponding to this instance.
