Monitor data and send alerts

Monitor your time series data and send alerts by creating checks, notification rules, and notification endpoints.

The monitoring workflow

  1. A check in InfluxDB queries data and assigns a status with a _level based on specific conditions.
  2. InfluxDB stores the output of a check in the statuses measurement in the _monitoring system bucket.
  3. Notification rules check data in the statuses measurement and, based on conditions set in the notification rule, send a message to a notification endpoint.
  4. InfluxDB stores notifications in the notifications measurement in the _monitoring system bucket.

Monitor your data

To get started, do the following:

  1. Create checks to monitor data and assign a status.
  2. Add notification endpoints to send notifications to third parties.
  3. Create notification rules to check statuses and send notifications to your notifications endpoints.
