Filters create a set of rules, which determine how monitoring responses are processed, or displayed, including:

  • Filters determine when and how alerts are sent.
  • Filters refine when alerts are received for errors.
  • Filters set parameters for the organization of reports.

Customization to specific needs

Filters customize the monitoring system to specific needs, for example:

  • Setting up an Error Response Filter to ignore an error unless certain error conditions are met.
  • One type of error you may wish to filter are HTTP status codes.
  • Applying an Error Response Filter to a Report in order to refine the responses delivered to the Report as data.
