Question

Is it possible to create an alert metric that only fires when a certain number increases?

For instance, we want to know when "com.website.skipped.count" increases in value compared to 5 minutes ago, but don't care if that number goes down.

Solution

You can accomplish this using a change alert. This can be done by selecting “Change Alert” in the Monitor definition and choosing “Change” option being “Above” the average from 5 minutes ago.
