Microservices Engine (MSE) provides the alerting feature. If alert rules are matched, MSE sends alert notifications to you by using emails, text messages, or DingTalk in real time. This helps you identify errors in a timely manner. On the Alerts page, you can manage custom alert rules of your account and query the historical details of alert events and alert notifications.
