Mute Notifications During Downtime

Administrators can choose to turn off all alert events and notifications if desired, for example, during a scheduled system downtime.

Muting notifications affects all channels globally. When muting is switched on, no notifications will be sent through any configured channel. You can choose whether to notify specific channels that notifications are temporarily disabled. Muting and re-enabling notifications is a MANUAL process.

  1. Log in to Sysdig Monitor or Sysdig Secure as administrator and select Settings.

  2. Select Notification Channels.

  3. Select the Downtime toggle.

    Optional: check the Yes box to Notify Channels when prompted, and select the desired channels.

    At this time, only Email and Slack channels can be notified when downtime is started/stopped.

Configure an Alert Start-Up Delay (On-Premises Only)

Sysdig alert jobs begin immediately at start-up. However, in instances where Sysdig goes down unexpectedly, or without proper shutdown/startup procedures implemented, data can be missing, triggering alert notifications.

A start-up delay in alert jobs can be configured in on-premises environments, by setting the draios.alerts.startupDelay parameter. The parameter requires a duration value; the example below shows a duration of 10 minutes:

draios.alerts.startupDelay=10m

This parameter can be configured for either Replicated or Kubernetes environments:

  • For Replicated environments, add the parameter to the Sysdig application JVM options list. For more information, refer to the Sysdig Install with Replicated documentation.

  • For Kubernetes environments, add the parameter to the sysdigcloud.jvm.worker.options parameter in the configmap. For more information on editing the configmap, refer to the Sysdig Install with Kubernetes 1.9+ documentation.
