Creating your first health alarm in Netdata

Creating your first health alarm in Netdata

Jan 14, 2021

The per-second metrics and interactive visualizations in the Netdata Agent don’t mean much if you don’t know what you should be looking at, or whether anything is going wrong on your node in the first place.

That’s why Netdata has a built-in health watchdog to notify you when metrics show an anomaly or full-blown incident that demands your immediate attention. Every Netdata Agent comes with hundreds of preconfigured charts that you don’t need to edit in order to take advantage of, but you may want to create your own based on your infrastructure, node, workload, or applications.

In this video, learn how to create your first custom alarm.
