Cloud Monitor provides multiple metrics, such as the CPU utilization, memory usage, and network conditions, to help you monitor the status of Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) clusters. After you create an ACK cluster, Cloud Monitor automatically monitors the cluster. You can log on to the Cloud Monitor console to view the detailed monitoring data. You can configure alert rules for the metrics. If a metric value exceeds the specified threshold, Cloud Monitor sends an alert notification.


Background information

  • Monitoring data is retained for up to 31 days.
  • You can view the monitoring data for up to 14 consecutive days.


  1. Create an alert template for ACK.
    1. Log on to the Cloud Monitor console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Alerts > Alert Templates.
    3. On the Alert Templates page, click Create Alert Template in the upper-right corner.
    4. In the Create/modify alert templates panel, enter the template name, select Kubernetes as the service, and configure alert rules.
    5. Click OK.
  2. Apply the alert template to the application group that is created for your ACK cluster.
    1. In the Create/modify alert template complete message, click OK.
    2. In the Apply Template to Group dialog box, select the application group and set the Muted, Effective Period, HTTP CallBack, and Option parameters.
    3. Click OK.
    4. In the Apply Template to Group message, click OK.

What to do next

  • If you need to send alert notifications for different ACK clusters to different alert groups, you must modify the alert group associated with each application group.

    For more information, see Modify an application group.

  • You can call an API operation to modify alert groups for multiple application groups at a time.

    Log on to OpenAPI Developer Portal and call the PutContactGroup operation to modify the alert groups.

    For more information about how to set the parameters of the PutContactGroup operation, see PutContactGroup.
