Alerts are notifications of metric events triggered by anomalies, no data, or deviations from a static value.
To easily and quickly create new alerts based on your stream settings, use the +New Alerts option in the Alert Console or Alerts Management screens.
Anodot draws and optimizes the mandatory alert trigger settings from your defined data streams. When creating a new alert, choose what you want to measure, if you want to get alerts when the anomaly spikes, drops or both and how long the anomaly has to last for an alert to be triggered before you receive a notification. Alert notifications are sent to recipients grouped according to what we refer to as channels, such as Email, Webhook, PagerDuty, or Slack.
- An alert can be updated and customized at any time from the Alerts Management page.
- For even more insightful alerts, you can create Ratio alerts, which provide a simple way to divide one measure by another measure, for example, CPC (Cost per Click) by CTR (Click Through Rate).
