Create Monitoring Rules
By installing mackerel-agent in your hosts, resource data will be collected and sent to Mackerel where, by setting your personal preferences and designating monitoring rules to your own specifications, this data can be monitored to a high degree of detail and customizability. With Mackerel you can monitor standard metrics such as CPU and memory usage and load average, as well as customized metrics like JVM, Amazon RDS, and ELB.
Establish threshold parameters for each monitoring rule at two levels, “warning” and “critical”. In the event a threshold is crossed Mackerel will alert you via all of the notification channels you have linked to your account. Find solutions to problems by being able to view and analyze alerts chronologically.
Receive alert notifications through the channel most convenient to you. Mackerel has the capability to send notifications not only by email, but also through a variety of services such as Slack, HipChat, Webhook, and more. We are continuously adding services that can cooperate with Mackerel to make notifications even more flexible and convenient.
