The anomaly detection engine is always running. You can choose email notifications for near-real-time email alerts on detected anomalies or send alerts to your shared Slack channel with DoiT.

Manage email notifications

To manage your email notifications:

  1. Select your account name in the upper-right corner of the top navigation menu, and then select your name from the drop-down menu.

  2. On your Users page, select Notifications from the left-hand menu.

  3. To be notified of potential anomalies, under Cloud cost anomalies, select the Cost anomaly detection checkbox and specify the notification conditions as needed.

    The cost anomalies section

Notification conditions

  • Scope: Choose resource groups (attributions) whose anomalies will trigger the alert notification. You can use this option to get notified only on anomalies related to a specific team or project.

  • Anomaly severity: Set the minimum severity threshold that will trigger the alert notification. There are three severity levels: Information, Warning, and Critical. By default, the severity level for email alerts is Critical.

  • Anomaly threshold: Set the minimum amount of the cost of anomaly that will trigger the alert notification. The threshold is the gap between your actual cost and the maximum cost in the normal range. You can't use decimals in this field.

Be aware that:

  • If you select an attribution as the Scope, you receive notifications only for anomalies within that specific attribution. You don't receive notifications for anomalies that occur within a broader (superset) or a narrower (subset) scope of that attribution.

  • If you choose multiple conditions, you receive notifications only when all of the specified conditions are met.
