Creating Alarm Rules


You can set alarm rules to customize the monitored objects and notification policies and to stay aware of the operating status.

The alarm rules include alarm rule names, resource type, dimensions, monitored objects, metrics, alarm thresholds, monitoring period, and whether to send notifications.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Under Management & Governance, click Cloud Eye.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Cloud Service Monitoring > GaussDB.
  4. Select the instance for which you want to create an alarm rule and click Create Alarm Rule in the Operation column.
  5. On the displayed page, set parameters as required.

    • Select Use template for Method. The template contains the alarm metric such as the disk usage.
    • Specify Name and Description.
    • Click to enable alarm notification. The validity period is 24 hours by default. If the topics you required are not displayed in the drop-down list, click Create an SMN topic. Then, select Generated alarm and Cleared alarm for Trigger Condition.

      Cloud Eye sends notifications only within the validity period specified in the alarm rule.

  6. Click Create. The alarm rule is created.
