With alerts you can easily tell whether an entity (the target for the notification) has one or more conditions associated with it:
- If yes, its health status indicator on the selected index (APM, browser, etc.) will be color-coded to the current state. To view a summary of current alert incidents, mouse over its health status indicator.
- If no, its health status indicator on the selected index will appear grey.
To learn more about how conditions and policies work together, see alerting concepts and terms.
The health status indicator doesn't apply for:
- Infrastructure entities
- Entities targeted by labels
Color-coded health status
Entities in New Relic are automatically color-coded with their health status. For example, to view the health of your apps, go to one.newrelic.com, then click APM. The Applications index lists all product entities and their current health status.
The entity is operational. We are collecting data that you can view in the appropriate UI. No alert incidents are currently reported for it.
The entity is degraded. A warning threshold has been violated.
A critical threshold has been violated:
The entity's status is unknown. We're not receiving alerts data for the entity. This could mean alerts are muted, not set up, or the reporting system is down.
Health status transitions
The following table describes the different health status transitions an entity can endure:
The entity is evaluated for at least one condition, and the results show there are no incidents present.
There's at least one open incident at the time the entity is undergoing the evaluation.
The last open incident associated to the entity has been closed.
Example: App without conditions
Here's an example of an app listed on the index that is not associated with any conditions. Its color-coded health status is light grey, which indicates no alert conditions are set up for that entity.
Go to one.newrelic.com, then click Explorer: This example shows an app that currently isn't associated with any alerts conditions. Its grey status icon means it doesn't have any conditions.
Follow standard procedures to add it to an existing condition or to create a new condition for it.
Example: App with conditions
Here's an example of an app listed on the index that is associated with one or more conditions. Its color-coded health status is green, because we are collecting data for it, and currently there are no Warning (yellow) or Critical (red) incidents.
Go to one.newrelic.com, then click Explorer: This example shows an app that has one or more conditions. Its color-coded health status (green) shows the app hasn't reached any threshold violations.
