tickscript.alert() function

tickscript.alert() is a user-contributed function maintained by the package author.

tickscript.alert() identifies events of varying severity levels and writes them to the statuses measurement in the InfluxDB _monitoring system bucket.

This function is comparable to TICKscript alert().

Parameters

check

(Required) InfluxDB check data. See tickscript.defineCheck().

id

Function that returns the InfluxDB check ID provided by the check record. Default is (r) => "${r._check_id}".

details

Function to return the InfluxDB check details using data from input rows. Default is (r) => "".

message

Function to return the InfluxDB check message using data from input rows. Default is (r) => "Threshold Check: ${r._check_name} is: ${r._level}".

crit

Predicate function to determine crit status. Default is (r) => false.

warn

Predicate function to determine warn status. Default is (r) => false.

info

Predicate function to determine info status. Default is (r) => false.

ok

Predicate function to determine ok status. Default is (r) => true.

topic

Check topic. Default is "".

tables

Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

Examples

Store alert statuses for error counts

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/tickscript"

option task = {name: "Example task", every: 1m}

check = tickscript.defineCheck(id: "000000000000", name: "Errors", type: "threshold")

from(bucket: "example-bucket")
    |> range(start: -task.every)
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "errors" and r._field == "value")
    |> count()
    |> tickscript.alert(
        check: {check with _check_id: "task/${r.service}"},
        message: "task/${r.service} is ${r._level} value: ${r._value}",
        crit: (r) => r._value > 30,
        warn: (r) => r._value > 20,
        info: (r) => r._value > 10,
    )
