I am trying to understand how the APM alerting works in terms of timing. We currently use the condition “Error percentage has a percentage above 0% for at least once in 5 minutes” to get alerted if any transaction fails on some of our services.
This can toggle in and out of incidents for some of these as they the transactions can be infrequent themselves. We are contemplating to increase the time period on the condition to stop the repeated notifications, but we are wondering if that will effect the latency of the notifications.
I can’t find documentation on how frequently the conditions are being checked. Will that be at intervals matching the window? Or is that an independent schedule I just can’t see?
