Configure and Resolve Alerts¶
Atlas issues alerts for the database and server conditions configured in your alert settings. When a condition triggers an alert, Atlas displays a warning symbol on the cluster and sends alert notifications. Your alert settings determine the notification methods. Atlas continues sending notifications at regular intervals until the condition resolves or you delete or disable the alert.
When you configure alerts, you specify alert conditions and thresholds. Review the possible alert conditions for which you can trigger alerts related to your clusters.
M0 free clusters and
M2/M5 shared clusters
only trigger alerts related to the metrics supported by
those clusters. See Atlas M0 (Free Cluster), M2, and M5 Limitations for complete documentation
M0/M2/M5 alert and metric limitations.
To set which conditions trigger alerts and how users are notified, Configure Alert Settings. You can configure alerts at the organization or project level. Atlas provides default alerts at the project level. You can clone existing alerts and configure maintenance window alerts.
When a condition triggers an alert, Atlas displays a warning symbol on the cluster and sends alert notifications. Resolve these alerts and work to prevent alert conditions from occurring in the future.
