Grafana Integration

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 alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of Integration

The Grafana integration is one-way, meaning:

  • When an alert is triggered ('alerting' state) in Grafana, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When the alert is resolved ('ok' state) in Grafana, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
