Monitoring and notifications are two separate concepts in the alerting application that allow you greater flexibility to determine how often incidents are generated and how often notifications are sent to recipients.
In the Monitoring Frequency section, you can set the following:
- Under Check for Alerts every, set the frequency at which the application is run and the time period selected each time the application is run. For example, if you set Check for Alerts every to 5 hours, the application runs every 5 hours and checks the last 5 hours of data.
- Under Notify me at most every, set the maximum frequency at which you are notified by a given alert. For example, if you set Notify me at most every to 1 day, a number of incidents could occur over the course of the day, but you are only notified of the first incident, and then again for 1 day.
