  • Alert into action! Use IBM Cloud Monitoring API to set performance thresholds and to be notified when those thresholds are breached.  IBM Cloud Monitoring supports alerts through e-mail, PagerDuty events, and webhook notifications, or any combination of the three.
  • Add custom metrics: Use APIs to add relevant application and business metrics to your Cloud Monitoring data.  Custom metrics are also supported from sources outside the IBM Cloud!
  • Build reusable dashboards and make them interactive: Build custom dashboards (on hosted Grafana) with a large palate of visualization options.  Make your dashboards dynamic with templating using metric queries with variables.
  • Choose the Lite plan or the Premium plan to match your usage needs.   The Lite plan retains metrics at full resolution for 15 days and the Premium plan retains metrics at full resolution for 45 days.
