Incidents dashlet

The Incidents dashlet displays the incidents defined in a System Profile and violations thereof. See Incidents and Alerting > Configuring Incident Rules for more information on incident rules.

Notification based on incident rules is more flexible than plain threshold notification, because it defines complex conditions that must be met to generate a notification. AppMon generates notifications if two or more measure values exceed their thresholds simultaneously.

Incident notifications are useful starting points for analysis. For more incident details and to see the conditions that causes the incident to be thrown, select Details from the context menu of an incident.
