Monitor data and send alerts

The features and functionality discussed on this page are unique to InfluxDB Cloud 2.0.

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.
