Publish event handler
The publish event handler publishes events to another topic.
The following publish event handler options can be set in a handler file.
|topics||list of string||List of topic names to publish events.|
Example: handler file
id: handler-id topic: topic-name kind: publish options: topics: - system - ops_team
Using the publish event handler
The following setup sends an alert to the
cpu topic with the message,
“Hey, check your CPU”.
A publish handler is added that subscribes to the
cpu topic and publishes new
alerts to other topics.
Create a TICKscript that publishes alert messages to a topic.
The TICKscript below sends an alert message to the
cpu topic any time idle CPU
usage drops below 10%.
stream |from() .measurement('cpu') |alert() .crit(lambda: "usage_idle" < 10) .message('Hey, check your CPU') .topic('cpu')
Add and enable the TICKscript:
kapacitor define cpu_alert -tick cpu_alert.tick kapacitor enable cpu_alert
Create a handler file that subscribes to the
cpu topic and uses the publish
event handler to publish alerts to other topics.
id: publish-cpu-alert topic: cpu kind: publish options: topics: - system - ops_team
Add the handler:
kapacitor define-topic-handler publish_cpu_alerts_handler.yaml
