My alert stopped emailing me today. It was fine previously. Looks like the alert didn't even noticed about the event.

Search alert:

sourcetype="access_combined_wcookie" 10.2.1.152 OR 10.2.1.153 status=500 startminutesago=1

scheduled to run every minute and alert when number of events is greater than 0

Haha, it stopped working again. This is very strange. No idea how to fix this. Probably mothership wants me to upgrade Splunk to 4.0.

Strange, the email alerts just started working again. Must be a bug.. I'm still on 3.4.14.
