Creating custom notifications for migration alarms

You might want StorageGRID to send alert notifications or alarm (legacy system) notifications to the system administrator responsible for monitoring migration if certain values exceed recommended thresholds.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Create a custom alert rule or a Global Custom alarm for each Prometheus metric or StorageGRID attribute you want to monitor during data migration.
    Alerts are triggered based on Prometheus metric values. Alarms are triggered based on attribute values. See the instructions for monitoring and troubleshooting StorageGRID for more information.
  2. Disable the custom alert rule or the Global Custom alarm after data migration is complete.
    Note that Global Custom alarms override Default alarms.
