Alert

Showing 122 of 3121

Display deployment markers in Event views

Smart Alerts with adaptive thresholds is a nice feature to detect anomalies. Very often these anomalies are triggered by a change in the system (for example a deployment). Many graphs in Instana display the deployment markers for this reason, but ...

Trigger alerts depending on several events linked with an AND

We currently use offline events in a static JBoss environment to trigger an incident at the control centre. Unfortunately, agent updates, for example, lead to the agents being switched offline in extreme cases. It would be very helpful if offline ...

Instana: Built-in "System memory exhausted" Alert needs to take active/inactive memory into consideration

The existing built-in "System memory exhausted" Alert in Instana is unusable and I will be using Turbonomic instead. The below SuSE Linux URL supports this stand as well. SuSE Support: Memory management best practices URL: https://www.suse.com/sup...

Grace Period "None" Option

I set up an event to detect JVM Offline incidents and set it as a critical condition, when this is detected an alert is raised and sent to our Teams channel for my team to react to. Following a critical alert we get a grace period alert which is n...

Support PagerDuty PD-CEF (Severity)

Currently when instana sends even details to PD, it lacks critical information like severity and uses a non-standard format. Ideally Instana alerts to PD conform to https://support.pagerduty.com/docs/pd-cef and include severity.

Ability to add more than 10 Application Perspective's to events/alerts/etc

Would like the ability to add more than 10 Application Perspective's to event/alerts. This would allow us to add more Application Perspective's to one alert instead of creating multiple of the same alert to cover the Application Perspective's that...

Open a service IP per tenant to send events via Webhook

Open a service IP per tenant to send events via Webhook, so that you don't have to open the entire list of IPs given by the instant support according to the region and then run the risk of adding more IPs without inform us and that the alerts do n...

metric or api endpoint for sent alerts

Currently there's only a fuzzy way to get the amount of sent out alerts, and even only for smart alerts. As alerting is a very crucial and important feature (when used), it should be easier to figure out how many alerts had been sent in the past (...

Event API: Fetch events related a single entity or a query

As an IT Ops engineer looking into specific entities in any 3rd party tools backed by Instana data, I would like to fetch / see all the existing issues and incidents of a specific entity. Currently, we have the API: https://instana.github.io/opena...
