Alerting

How to create an alert if failure increased in last 5 minutes?

Path Finder

Hi,

I want to create an alert which gets triggered if the failure count is more than 5 in last 5 minutes:


1- it should run on every 5 minutes
2- it should send an email as well

Here is base search and settings as well:

index=myindex sourcetype=xyz host=“tus3crs” "EventLogger*" AND "Purchase event" vertical=Stationary Type=Notebook (PurchaseStatus=510 OR PurchaseStatus=515 OR PurchaseStatus=530 OR PurchaseStatus=540) | dedup itemId sortBy -_time

NOTE- These status are different failure states of the itemalt text

Please help me with setting up this alert. thank you.

I've found it easiest to have the search test for the alert condition and have the alert trigger if the number of results is not zero. In this case,

index=myindex sourcetype=xyz host=“tus3crs” "EventLogger*" AND "Purchase event" vertical=Stationary Type=Notebook (PurchaseStatus=510 OR PurchaseStatus=515 OR PurchaseStatus=530 OR PurchaseStatus=540) 
| stats count by itemId 
| where count > 5
