Once you create alerts, you can view their conditions from one place to see a general status of all conditions. If you need to pause an alert for a condition, you can snooze it for a defined period of time. You can also edit and delete conditions.

View Conditions

You can get a quick overview of conditions, and if they are in compliance or not, from the Conditions page. Open the Conditions page by clicking Monitoring from the navigation bar.

The Conditions view lists all conditions by Stream. Conditions can have the following statuses:

  • Red: The condition is in violation.
  • Green: The condition is active and is currently in a non-triggered state. All inbound traffic is being analyzed by the Satellites against the criteria you have set over the defined evaluation window.
  • Yellow: The condition is active within Lightstep, but is currently in a snoozed state. This means that ingested traffic is being analyzed against the criteria defined in the condition, but alerts will not be generated if a threshold is breached.
  • Grey: The condition has been created and is currently propagating to the Satellites but it’s not yet in an active monitoring state. If the condition remains grey after a few minutes, try refreshing your browser window to fetch the most up-to-date condition state.

If alerting rules have been created for the condition, an icon displays for the destination type and a number shows how many rules of that type exist.

You can filter conditions by service, operation, or condition type. Click a condition to open the corresponding Stream.

Edit a Condition from the Conditions View

You can also edit a condition from the Stream.

To edit a Condition:

  1. From the navigation bar, click Monitoring and for the condition to edit, use the gear icon to choose Edit.

  2. Edit anything about the condition including adding and deleting alerting rules.

  3. When done, click Save Changes.

Snooze a Condition

There may be times when you don’t want alerts to be sent, but you do want to keep the condition. You can snooze the condition and Lightstep pauses analysis of data against a condition for the designated period of time (in seconds, minutes, hours, or days).

To snooze a condition:

  1. From the navigation bar, click Monitoring and for the condition to snooze, click Snooze.

  2. Select the amount of time to snooze the alert, or enter a custom time period.

    The status of the condition is set as Snoozed.

    To remove the snooze, click Edit Snooze and Remove.

Delete a Condition

You can delete a condition.

To delete a condition:

From the navigation bar, click Monitoring and for the condition to delete, use the gear icon to choose Delete.
