To set up a new Threshold Monitor, navigate to the 'Monitoring' Module
and click the bright yellow button that says '+ New Monitor'.
It is advised to first select your data source so that you can see your visualization form as you build your Monitor. In the metric drop-down, choose which metric you'd like to monitor. For a complete list of metrics, their availability details, and their definitions, please refer to Metrics and Dimensions Glossary.
Next, select the frequency for the monitor to be checking for breaches, either every 10 minutes or every hour
You can then choose whether you would like to apply a filter (Dimension) to the monitor:
Once you've chosen your desired Metrics and Dimensions you can then choose whether you want the monitor to track an increase or a decrease in the performance of the specific data set you've chosen.
From there you can then select the type of monitor you want to set up, in this instance, you will want to choose 'Threshold'
From here, you can set your numerical Threshold for the monitor. Depending on whether you've chosen to monitor for an increase or a decrease you'll have an option to either set an 'Upper Threshold' or a 'Lower Threshold' and also after how many consecutive breaches you'd like to be alerted after.
Once you've filled in all available fields and you are happy with your monitor you will then choose the notification alert method.
To see how you set up a notification channel please look at our handy guide How to setup Notification Channels
The final step will be for you to give your Monitor a name and click Save.
Your Threshold Monitor should now be ready to go!
