Coralogix Alerts allow for timely detection of anomalies, proactive incident response, improved mean time to resolution (MTTR), reduced manual monitoring effort, customization and flexibility. Powered by machine learning, our alerts proactively notify teams of potential problems, correlate incidents, and provide root cause analysis. By reducing response fatigue and prioritizing incidents for immediate action, Coralogix Alerts is an indispensable tool for maintaining optimal performance.
Alerting refers to the practice of setting up automated notifications or alarms that trigger when certain predefined conditions or thresholds are met. These conditions can be related to the performance, health, or behavior of the systems, applications, or infrastructure being monitored. The main purpose of alerting is to promptly notify you – DevOps teams and developers – when something unusual or problematic occurs, so you can take appropriate actions to resolve the issue before it escalates.
Use our alerting capabilities for any of the following:
Our alerts are powered by our Streama© technology, which enables automatic triggering of your alerts as part of the streaming process, without prior indexing. In other words, we process your data first and delay storage and indexing until all important decisions have been made. This gives you the value of alerting without paying for the expensive cost of Frequent Search Indexing. Using this technology, our alerts automatically learn your system and adapt to your evolving infrastructure, allowing for rapid setup that can track thousands of components and proactively alert on deviations from the norm.
Check out this high-level workflow of how alerts are generated, triggered, and delivered to users.
STEP 1. Setting Alert Rules
Administrators, developers, or DevOps define alert rules within the observability platform. These rules specify the conditions under which an alert should be triggered. For instance, they might set a rule to alert when the CPU usage exceeds a certain threshold or when specific error messages appear in the logs.
STEP 2. Data Collection and Analysis
The Coralogix platform continuously collects data from the system, including logs, metrics, and traces. It processes and analyzes this data against the defined alert rules.
STEP 3. Alert Triggering
When the monitored data meets the conditions specified in the alert rules, an alert is triggered. This could be a sudden spike in error rates, high latency, low resource availability, or any other predefined anomaly.
STEP 4. Alert Aggregation and Deduplication
The alerting system may aggregate multiple similar alerts into a single notification to prevent overwhelming users with redundant notifications. Also, it may deduplicate alerts to avoid bombarding users with repetitive information.
STEP 5. Notification and Escalation
Once an alert is triggered and processed, the system sends notifications to the designated users or teams. Notifications can be delivered through various channels such as email, Slack, SMS, or integrated incident management platforms. If the situation remains unresolved, the alert may be escalated to higher-level teams or individuals.
STEP 6. Alert Resolution and Acknowledgment
The recipients of the alert acknowledge the alert and take appropriate actions to address the issue. Once the problem is resolved, they mark the alert as “Done” within the platform.
STEP 7. Monitoring and Reporting
Throughout the alerting process, the observability platform continuously monitors the system’s status. It may keep track of acknowledgment status, resolution time, and other metrics to generate reports and help with post-incident analysis and improvement.
Choose from any of the following alerts:
STEP 1. Sign up for a Coralogix account if you haven’t already done so.
STEP 2. Send your data to Coralogix using our two-step, out-of-the box integration packages or select from our full list of integrations. Many of our integration packages allow you to deploy our associated extension packages, unlocking a set of predefined dashboards, alerting and parsing rules, allowing you to jumpstart your Coralogix monitoring.

STEP 3. Set up your alerts. Use our extension packages for deploying predefined alerts or manual setup.
Optionally, you can set up our Alerts API. This enables you to create alerts that actively check system performance and notify you when there are changes to your data. Our Alerts API allows you to define, query, and manage your alerts programmatically, creating a powerful, dynamic alerting experience that can adapt.
Our world-class customer success team is available 24/7 to walk you through your setup and answer any questions that may come up.
