Optimize Action in Alerts to trigger only once for a detected anomaly


(Prince) #1

Hi Experts,

I need to optimize the alerts as triggered in scheduled interval in which the action is to be executed only once for detected anomalies and the same alert should not execute the action until the anomaly is resolved and execute the action again if the same anomaly is detected again.

can you help me in creating the alert as above statement?

Thanks in advance

You can set a throttle_period long enough to ensure that the anomalies are resolved.

If the current anomaly (i.e. what makes the condition come true) is resolved within the throttle period:

  • the next watch execution won't have it's condition met so...
  • no actions will be executed and
  • the alert will be "rearmed", ready for the next anomaly.

A similar question has been asked here recently, you can get more information there: How to stop sending duplicate Slack notifications for the same error?

throttle period is one possible solution to this - but it might be limited.

If you really need to check for previous executions, a chain input, where the first input consists of querying the last three watch history entries for this watch might be helpful. This way you could detect also flapping of your check, if you need to.

Hope this helps!
