This topic describes how to enable the alerting feature for your Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch cluster. This feature is provided by CloudMonitor. After this feature is enabled, alert rules are created to detect errors, such as abnormal cluster status, high disk usage (greater than 75%), and high JVM heap memory usage (greater than 85%). These rules apply to all Elasticsearch clusters under your Alibaba Cloud account.
