Choose Duration

Duration is the consecutive length of time for which all the conditions in a policy must be met before an event or other optional notification is created. The default setting for metric condition duration is 5 minutes; the default (and only) setting for external event condition duration is real-time. Because CloudWisdom aggregates data on five-minute cycles, the duration for metric conditions must be at least 5 minutes.

By setting the duration of ExamplePolicy X to 10 minutes, an event will not be created in CloudWisdom until all the conditions in ExamplePolicy X have been met for the same period of 10 consecutive minutes.

Set a Duration

On Policy Editor, under the 2. Conditions section:

  1. Metric Conditions: Select between 5 minutes and 6 hours.
  2. External Event Conditions: Real-time is the only available option.
