Alarm policy overview

To detect the change in the state of a service, create an alarm policy to trigger the alarm to promptly notify the change.

The alarm policy contains the following parts:

  • Alarm policy type: This includes the cloud product type, for example: KEC or EIP.

  • Alarm rules: Configure rules for the selected cloud product. For example, the disk utilization is greater than 80%, and the memory utilization is greater than 50% for the KEC.

  • Associated instance: Configure the associated instance. The alarm will be given when the instance triggers the alarm rule.

  • Alarm recipient: The alarm recipient defines the recipient of the alarm meeting the alert policy and receives the notification (email or SMS) after the rule is triggered.

  • Default policy: The default policy is to simplify the user operation. A policy is specified as the default policy, and the product purchased newly will be associated with this default policy automatically without having to configure it again.
