Alerts overview

An alert is a message that describes a change that has occurred in an event group.

At any point in time, you can view event groups to track situations occurring on your cluster. However, you can also create alerts that will proactively notify you if there is a change in an event group.

For example, you can generate an alert when a new event is added to an event group, when an event group is resolved, or when the severity of an event group changes.

You can configure your cluster to only generate alerts for specific event groups, conditions, severity, or during limited time periods.

Alerts are delivered through channels. You can configure a channel to determine who will receive the alert and when.
