Monitoring Watchpoints for incidents

When you create a Watchpoint, you can automatically create incident detection rules that monitor the Watchpoint traffic for incidents. An incident is an event in web traffic characterized by abnormal performance, availability, or traffic volume as compared to a baseline.

Incident detection rules determine how the system detects, analyzes, and notifies you about problems (incidents) in your web traffic.

For each Watchpoint, you can configure incident detection rules of different types.

Incident Detection Rule Types

Type

Description

Performance

Performance rules cause the system to declare incidents when it detects an abnormal amount of pages that violate the service level thresholds (SLTs)
Performance rules can only be configured for page Watchpoints.

Availability

Availability rules cause the system to declare incidents when it detects an abnormally high percentage of errored requests.
You can customize which errors the system monitors for incidents.

Volume

Volume rules cause the system to declare incidents when it detects an abnormally high number of requests.

You can customize any incident detection rules that you created on the Detecting incidents page.
