Alerting Threshold Condition Improvements: Simplify Baseline Configuration
Today, we're excited to announce an exciting update to Kentik's Alerting threshold condition capabilities. We've improved our threshold conditions to make them easier to configure and more powerful than ever. For those unfamiliar, kentik's threshold conditions allow users to set thresholds including baselines, to alert them when key performance metrics exceed or fall below-specified values. We have made it easier to configure these thresholds when using baselines, by providing a simple "Above or Below" drop-down, versus in the past, to configure a policy to trigger at 20% below the baseline, we had to set the rule to 125% above the baseline, as this is what the API was expecting. This was confusing and hard to understand for the user.
You know can simply select a % above or below the baseline. This should provide a much easier-to-understand experience for users creating alert policies with baselines.
