Setting up alerts question...

Jump to solution
I have like 1200 services I'm trying to monitor. Is there a way to mass change them all so I get an email alert if one is unavailable? I see how this can be performed by going into each one individually and setting up an alert but I do not see how you can set up an alert with multiple selections.

The Enterprise Subscription version of HQ has alert policies. This allows you to create an alert definition and have it apply to all resources of a specific type. It's likely that this feature will become open sourced in the near future, so you may have free access to it soon.

Another thing to note is that HQ 3.0 will support group alerting. So you will be able to setup alerts on groups of resources.

Can we update the postgtres db directly to affect these changes?

Going to the database directly is not possible as the data model is complicated. The alert definition and the resource/metric identification will require lookups and inserts into multiple tables.

That would be fantastic if the alert policies were open-sourced. That's one of the few things left that keep me using Zabbix.
