Today we’ve made Kapacitor, the InfluxData project for monitoring and alerting on time series data, available on our AWS backed InfluxCloud offering. Existing and new InfluxCloud customers can now add a fully managed instance of Kapacitor starting at $200 per month.

Using Kapacitor’s API, users can create and enable TICKscripts on our cloud. Here’s an example that will send an alert to Slack if CPU utilization is > 95% for more than two minutes. It performs this check every 10 seconds.

```
stream
    |from()
        .measurement('cpu')
    |window()
        .period(2m)
        .every(10s)
    |alert()
        .crit(lambda: "value" > 95)
        // Only alert if all points in the window match the criteria.
        .all()
        .slack()
        .channel('#alerts')
```

Alerts can be configured based on moving averages, outliers, missing data (known as a dead man’s switch) and many other criteria. See the Kapacitor documentation for more examples and details on how it works.
