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.
