I have a requirement to create an alert/ notification when there is a sudden drop on “Responses per Interval”.

I don’t see anything available out of the box. Please share any helpful documentation that shows how to create a custom alert suiting this requirement.


Release : 10.7.0

Component : APM Agents


Yes, you can create custom alerts based on your needs.  Alerts are based on numbers only and not by sudden increases or decreases.  You would need to figure out what value of Responses Per Interval would be considered a sudden drop.  For example, if your metric history maintains between 25 and 35 every interval, then you could consider that a normal measure of your application.  If it drops to below 20, then you could alert on it. 


In this situation, the customer required more of a configuration than listed above.  In this case he is going to use a Javascript Calculator.
