Grafana Integration Guide
Grafana is the open platform for beautiful analytics and monitoring.
How Grafana users benefit from PagerTree
Grafana triggers user defined alerts by monitoring time series metrics. PagerTree acts as the dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules. PagerTree notifies them via email, sms, voice, and/or push notifications until the incident is acknowledged or closed.
Functionality of Integration
The Grafana integration is one-way, meaning:
- When an alert is triggered (
'alerting'state) in Grafana, an incident is created in PagerTree automatically.
- When the alert is resolved (
'ok'state) in Grafana, the incident is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
In this integration tutorial we will show you how to send alerts from Grafana into PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 10 minutes. We assume that you already have a PagerTree account and Grafana setup.
