Introduction to alerts and applied intelligence

Alerts and applied intelligence are a suite of tools and features that proactively notify you when things go wrong–even when they're starting to go wrong.

Alerts lets you define the conditions in your system you want to be notified about, letting you focus on the things you care about most.

Applied intelligence is a machine-learning engine that reduces alert noise, correlates incidents, automatically detects anomalies, and provides root cause analysis. Not only that, it enriches your notifications with metadata to give you greater context of what's happening when you are notified.

In the New Relic UI, Alerts & AI is divided into several sections, each unlocking different features. Check out the section explanations below to learn how these features can meet your needs.

Analyze your issues, incidents, and anomalies

Use the analyze features to scan for critical problems affecting your systems, via alerts violations, issues, incidents, and anomalies.

Detect problems in your system

Use the detect features to define the conditions in your system you want to be notified about, as well as to configure how anomalies are detected.

  • Alert conditions (policies): Create new policies to group related conditions together. Also, lists the policies where your conditions are created and organized.
  • Anomaly detection: Manage your anomaly detection configurations. An anomaly is a behavioral trend that doesn't match the historical data for your system. You can add or edit the configurations here.

Correlate the data coming into your system

Use the correlate features to define your data sources and to review and configure the logic that groups your incidents.

  • Sources: Manage the data input sources you've chosen to analyze and be notified about. You can add new sources or configure existing ones.
  • Decisions: Review your correlated incidents and make decisions on how to respond to them. You can also review, edit, and add decisions.

Enrich and notify your notifications with useful metadata

Use the enrich and notify features to add additional metadata to your notifications, schedule when you don't want to be notified, and configure where your notifications get sent.

  • Muting rules: Temporarily stop your alerts notifications.
  • Workflows: Add more data to your notifications.
  • Destinations: Configure where your applied intelligence notifications get sent.

Use Settings to review and manage your usage

Use the general settings page to review and manage your current incident intelligence usage.
