Too many alert notifications

I am getting too many alert notifications. Many of them are due to some short-lived spikes that I don’t want to be notified about. How can I reduce the number of notifications emails I am getting?

It sounds like the alert detectors you have configured on your targets are too sensitive. You can tune the up in the Anomaly Detection section of the Settings tab.

Either increase the Watermark alert thresholds, or increase the Baseline alert multipliers.

Here is the documentation page that describes how to do that:

Another things you can do is to use the Incidents to get notified about higher-level events. Incidents are an aggregation of alerts. More details on Incidents here:
