Metric values in alarm messages

  • Services: Monitoring
  • Release Date: Sept. 12, 2023

The "Metric values" section is now available in alarm messages for all notification destinations except for SMS. Metric values are included for both grouped and split notifications.

Use a message's metric values to determine if the resource needs attention now. For example, consider an alarm that triggers at 70% CPU utilization. If the metric value is 95%, then you would probably want to attend to the resource as soon as possible. If the metric value is 71%, then you might decide to ignore it.
