Relic Solution: Evaluating an absence of data with a NRQL alert condition

What happened to all the content here?

In October 2020, we introduced a new unified streaming alerts platform that dramatically simplified the way in which NRQL alert conditions handle an absence of data.

Whereas this post previously described a complex set of rules governing how an absence of data will affect the lifecycle of a violation, I must now refer you to our documentation on the simplified Loss of signal concept. I think you’ll like it.

Happy alerting (on an absence of data)!
