Recovery thresholds

What are recovery thresholds?

Definition

Recovery thresholds are additional thresholds added to a monitor that indicates an additional condition to a monitor’s recovery from alert or warning states.

Behaviour

When you set up a threshold metric monitor, you get alerted when a metric passes the alert threshold.

The recovery threshold adds a condition to the monitor’s recovery such that it only enters recovered state once it has passed the recovery threshold.

Note: Your metric value needs to be strictly below/above the recovery threshold for the monitor to recover.

Benefits

Recovery thresholds reduce noise in cases of a flapping monitor, and increase your confidence that upon recovery, the alerting metric has recovered and the issue has been resolved.

How to set up recovery thresholds?

Via the UI

You can set up thresholds for alert and warning recovery:recovery_threshold.gif

 

Via the API

When you create/edit a monitor (Monitor API doc) use the attributes critical_recovery and warning_recovery attributes in the options.thresholds attribute of your JSON monitor:

"thresholds": {
                       "critical": 80,
                       "warning": 60,
                       "critical_recovery": 70,
                       "warning_recovery": 50
                      }
