Configuring Alarm Policies

Last updated: 2021-09-30 18:00:15

    You can configure alarm rules for the connection, dedicated tunnel and direct connect gateway on the Cloud Monitor console. When an alarm rule is triggered, you will receive notifications via the channel you specified, helping you take appropriate measures.

    Directions

    1. Log in to the Cloud Monitor console and choose Alarm Configuration > Alarm Policy on the left sidebar.
    2. Click Create on the Alarm Policy page.
    3. Configure a new alarm policy as instructed below.
      1. Fill in Policy Name and Remarks. Select Physical Dedicated Line, Dedicated Line Channel or Direct Connect Gateway for Policy Type as needed.
      2. Choose a project to which the alarm policy belongs. Each project supports creating a maximum of 300 alarm policies.
      3. Select the alarm object.
        • If you select All Objects, the alarm policy will be associated with all instances under the current account.
        • If you select Instance ID and select instances in the pop-up window, the alarm policy will be associated with the selected instances.
        • If you select Instance Group, the alarm policy will be associated with the selected instance group. If there is no available instance group, you can click Create instance group to configure one.
      4. Configure the trigger condition using either of:
        • Template
          Click Select template and select a configured template in the drop-down list.
          Note

          You can click Add Trigger Condition Template to configure a new trigger condition template. For more information about the configurations, please see Configuring Trigger Condition Template. If the new template is not displayed in the list, click the refresh icon.

        • Manual configuration
          Select Configure manually and configure Metric Alarm and Event Alarm as needed.
          • Set the trigger condition. You can click Add Metric to configure a new metric. For more information about metric alarms, see Alarm Overview.
            For example, if you choose BandwidthIn metric and configure as follows: statistical period: 1 minute, >, 100 Mbps, at 2 consecutive data points, and Alarm once a day, then the inbound bandwidth data will be collected once every minute. An alarm will be triggered once a day if the inbound bandwidth of a connection, dedicated tunnel or direct connect gateway exceeds 100 Mbps for two consecutive minutes.
            Note:

            Click Add Metric to configure a new trigger condition. You can choose to trigger an alarm when any or all conditions are met.

          • Select a specific event such as DirectConnectDown for the event alarm. You can click Add Event to configure a new event alarm. For more information about event alarms, see Alarm Overview.
            Note

            Click Add Event to configure a new event alarm.

    4. Configure alarm notification.
      The notification template allows you to configure alarm recipients. You can click Select template and select an existing template, or click Create Template to configure a new template as prompted.
    5. (Optional) Configure the API callback.
      1. Click Create Template. In the pop-up window, click For more configurations, please go to notification template page.
      2. On the New Notification Template page, complete the notification template configurations, enter a URL accessible over public networks as the API callback address (domain name or IP[:port][/path]), and click Complete.
      3. Go to the Alarm Policy page and select the alarm notification template you’ve just created.
        Then Cloud Monitor will push the alarm information to this address in time.
    6. After the configuration is complete, click Complete.
