I have setup several alerts in New Relic to warn us if our Acquia CPU Utilization reaches a certain threshold, but they don’t seem to be working and might need some proper adjustments.
Today I noticed that one of our web servers in hit 90% at 5:38pm and 94% at 5:58pm, we currently have a cron job running, which might explain the spike, but I was expecting to get an alert for it.
Below are screenshots from Acquia and New Relic as well as the Policies I put in place. Can someone please help me correct me my policies so they can be effective?
These are reports for the past hour alone.
Acquia CPU Usage:
New Relic CPU and Memory usage report:
We’ve had several DDOS attacks early this year that rendered maxed our CPU usage at 100% for an hour. How can I properly make an alert for that? When that happened, it was only one or two of our servers that was maxed out. The policies don’t let me choose which web server to make an alert for though.
Appreciate any help!
