Alerting

Trigger real time alert once

Hello,

I was wondering how I can make Splunk notify me of an alert in real time only once. For example, if I'm running a real time search for when a firewall is turned off, how do I keep Splunk from alerting me for the same results repeatedly (which looks like it happens 3 to 4 times a minute)?

Thanks

hi samiomer

Alert throttling can be setup like written in the docs or for pre 4.2 splunk with the app alert throttle.

Only 4.3 supports "once per event".
Anyone found a fully working work-around for 4.2.2?

There are a few performance and security issues that are solved as well when upgrading.

my understanding of throttling is that it's not the same as alerting once per event.

eg, if i have throttling set to no more than once per minute,
and an event occurs twice, in two consecutive seconds,
i want to get exactly two alerts.

i'm still looking for an answer to the poster's question.

Did this ever get resolved? I'm looking for this same thing now, 7 years later... Is this built in?
