Greetings! I’m new with Extrahop and I’ve been trying to find a way to set up a trend alert for a custom metric with no luck. It’s a bit confusing what to put on the “Metric” field value of the alert definition.
I’ve tried to put the following as the metric value:
The custom metric name is “Custom - All Requests” from a Custom Application. The metric data is generated just fine on the dashboard and contains enough variation to be able to trigger a trend alert.
So far I’ve been unable to generate the trend alert even when setting it with what I think will definitely trigger the alert. E.g.
Firing Mode: Level-triggered every 5 mins
Alert when: mean over 30s < 100 percent of trend
Trend Settings: Minute Roll Avg of 15mins with the default Mean weighting.
Appreciate any advice if I’m missing something here.
