A Flow Alert is designed to notify when any combination of alert events occurs in a specific sequence within a defined timeframe.
For example, to be notified when an increase in HTTP error rate is caused by high CPU utilization, you would configure a Flow Alert to trigger when a ‘High CPU utilization’ alert is followed by a ‘High HTTP error rate’ alert within 10 minutes.
Coralogix provides the Flow Builder tool to visually combine, and then chain together, the user-defined alerts that will trigger a Flow Alert. The basic building blocks of the Flow Alert are Stages and Groups.
A Group represents a logical combination of individual User-defined alerts. The Group supports OR, AND, and NOT logical operators to combine multiple individual alerts.
A Stage represents alert groups that need to trigger within a specified timeframe. Multiple Groups can be present in a stage.
As you define a flow alert, it is important to consider the following constraints:
