IoT Platform imposes limits on the frequency of connection requests, the frequency of upstream and downstream communication, and the frequency of message forwarding. If the limits are reached, throttling is triggered. This may affect the daily operations of your business. This topic describes how to use the monitoring and alerting features of CloudMonitor to configure alert rules. After you configure alert rules, you can receive alert notifications when specific resources become abnormal and handle issues at the earliest opportunity.
- Log on to the CloudMonitor console.
- In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
- Click the Event-triggered Alert Rules tab.
- Click Create Alert Rule.
- In the Create/Modify Event-triggered Alert Rule panel, configure the parameters and click OK.
The following table describes the parameters.
