CloudMonitor automatically retrieves the resources of cloud services that belong to the current Alibaba Cloud account. You can view the monitoring charts of each cloud service. You can also configure alert rules to monitor resources. If an alert is triggered based on the alert rules, CloudMonitor sends an alert notification to you. This way, you are notified of the status of your cloud resources as early as possible.
