alertCondition string

The condition for the threshold value check: above or below.

samples integer

The number of one-minute samples that form sliding evaluation window.

eventName string

The name of the event to trigger on the threshold violation.

description string

A description of the event, triggered by a threshold violation.

You can use the following placeholders: {severity}: the actual metric value, {alert_condition}: above or below threshold condition, {threshold}: the threshold value,{violating_samples}: the number of samples, violating the threshold, {dimensions}: metric's dimension that violated the threshold.

enabled boolean
