Alerting Overview

ChaosSearch alerts page is the list of all alerts that are visible within the platform. This guide will walk through the creation of a Monitor, a Trigger, and the specific Destination that alerts should be sent to.

Create Monitor - Creating a monitor in ChaosSearch will allow you to specify a particular value that should be monitored when defining the monitor by utilizing the extraction query or visual graph.

Create Trigger - To create a trigger, you specify the threshold value for the field that is being monitored. If the value of the field exceeds the threshold, the Monitor enters the Active state.

Create Destination - Choose between a Slack channel, AWS Chime, or you can set up a custom webhook to receive messages. If you choose a custom webhook, you will set up headers and a message body, and the plugin will POST its message to the destination URL.
