Setting up alerts

Kibana’s alerting capabilities go beyond the basics, incorporating support for machine learning rules. These rules allow you to schedule checks that can detect anomalies in one or more anomaly detection jobs.

Additionally, they can assess the health of a job based on specific conditions. When the conditions of a rule are met, Kibana creates an alert and triggers the associated action. This integration of machine learning with alerting in Kibana enhances the platform’s ability to proactively identify and respond to potential issues or abnormal patterns in data. By leveraging machine learning algorithms, Kibana empowers users to automate the monitoring process and improve overall operational efficiency.

With its advanced alerting features, Kibana provides organizations with a powerful tool for staying ahead of potential problems and optimizing their data analysis workflows.
