Basic Terms

  1. Alerting Channels

Channels are the reusable locations for an action, such as Email, Slack, Amazon Chime, or a webhook URL.

2. Monitors

Monitors are jobs running on a defined schedule and query Logstail.com. The results of these queries are then used as input for one or more triggers.

3. Triggers

Triggers are conditions that, when met, generate alerts and can perform some action.

4. Actions

Actions are the piece of information that you want the monitor to send out after being triggered. They have a destination, a message subject, and a message body.

6. Dashboards

The dashboard gives you an overall picture of your alerting state.

7. Alerts

Alert is a notification that a monitor’s trigger condition has been met.
