Custom scheduling of instana alert

Custom scheduling of alerting is not available - like volume monitoring alerts to be scheduled only for week days, this will be useful to schedule the alerts only for the required time and ignore false alerts

Edit the evaluation granularity for a smart alert

The minimum evaluation granularity for a smart alert is limited at 5 mins, We need to change it so that we get alerts related to slow calls etc which may not persist for more than 5 minutes. Below is a real time scenario. When will a person be ale...

WAS/JBoss heap size alerting

We would like the ability to have events, so that we can alert, on the heap size of both Websphere and JBOSS JVM's so that we can be alerted if the size approaches the maximum amount.
