You can now have notifications sent to channels for monitor rule operations etc.

Hello! Mackerel team CRE Inoue (id:a-know) here.

Already the 4th week in December, I’ve attended a end-of-the-year party everyday this week. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season as much as me.

This will be the last of this year’s weekly updates for Mackerel.

Since September of 2014, we’ve continued our tradition of “Consecutive weekly releases” and we’ll be aiming for 200 consecutive weeks in the coming year. We’re also excited to deliver various new functions/updates to everyone in 2018!

Now on to this week’s update information.

You can now have notifications sent to channels for monitor rule operations

It is now possible to have event notifications sent to notification channels when monitor rule related operations (creating / updating / deleting) are made.

If you select Webhook as the notification channel, changes made to the monitor rule will be included in the JSON format notification content. The specifics follow below.

  • Creating or updating a monitor rule
    • Monitor rule content will be notified after the operation
  • Deleting a monitor rule
    • Monitor rule content will be notified immediately before deletion

Posting graphs in notification channels now supported with LINE and Yammer

The graph posting feature allows you to post graphs to notification channels by clicking the camera icon in the graph menu. This is a useful feature because it lets you share metrics at any time, even those not configured for alerts. Now, LINE and Yammer are also supported with this feature.

Check out the following help page for more on this feature.

Updates for Mackerel related OSS

Thanks for another great year!

Although I mentioned this at the beginning, this will be our last update announcement for this year. Thank you so much for supporting Mackerel through 2017.

We are excited for 2018 and continuing our weekly updates. Next year, we hope to deliver an even more advanced and efficient server monitoring/management experience to our users through Mackerel.

Thank you for choosing Mackerel. Until next year!
