CloudShare Analytics can provide alert notifications in real-time when an important goal is reached or an unexpected change occurs, to help you stay ahead of any challenges.
This enables you to take immediate action whenever needed – for example contacting a customer, or increasing storage space.
The notification is sent only to the CloudShare user who schedules it.
Three types of different real-time alerts are supported:
Threshold. An alert is sent when a specified threshold is reached. This is most useful when you are monitoring data that changes in a regular, cyclical schedule.
Automatic. An alert is sent whenever an anomaly is identified in the monitored data, based on a built-in machine learning algorithm. The algorithm actively learns from your data and eliminates noise, so that its accuracy increases over time.
Always. An alert is sent immediately following a recalculation of your data. It will not matter if there is a change in your data or not.
To create a real-time notification:
Go to the Resources Notification Dashboard.
From the Widgets menu of the metric you want to be alerted about, click Add to Pulse.
The Add to Pulse dialog is displayed:
In the Name field, enter a unique name for the new alert notification.
In the Alert Condition area, select the condition that will trigger the alert. Choose from Threshold, Automatic or Always, as described above.
If you choose Threshold, enter the desired threshold value in the field that appears. Use the dropdown menu to left of the value field to select from various comparison options (e.g., 'Greater than', 'Smaller than', etc.).
Click Add to create the alert.
