Include Graphs in alert messages

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

Couldn't find a way to do this using the alert tokens available so I figured I would post it here. I noticed some cool features from other monitoring tools that allow graphs to be sent in the alert body to PagerDuty. So when I receive a PagerDuty page from LM it would be nice to see the associated graph with the data point that is alerting.

 

While just the alert text is good enough for most scenarios I think seeing how big of a jump/spike the data point made before alerting would be useful. The alert "C drive is 90% full" is all fine and good but when you see a graph showing it go from 12% to that 90% in just a minute or two then you know something is really up and might need more expediency as it will probably continue to fill up at that rate.
