Global Control Plane Health Alert

The Global Control Plane Health alert monitors the virtual machine of your Controller and CoPilot (main server) instances and triggers an alert when the virtual machine meets any of the following conditions:

  • More than 90% CPU is used

  • More than 90% Memory is used

  • Less than 5% of Disk Free is available

You can change the default trigger conditions for this alert.

When the alert triggers, the event is listed in the CoPilot > Monitor > Alerts page. In the Alerts page, search on Global Control Plane Health to see the number of times by date the alert type was triggered.

You can configure this alert to send a notification message to the notification channel (email or webhook) of your choice when the alert is triggered. See Configuring the Global Control Plane Health Alert.

If the Global Control Plan Health alert is triggered often, you may need to increase the size of the virtual machine running your Controller or CoPilot or both.

Configuring the Global Control Plane Health Alert

To configure the Global Control Plane Health Alert:

  1. Go to the Monitor > Notifications page and click on Alerts Configuration.

  2. In the Search box, type Global Control Plane Health to quickly locate the relevant row in the table list and click the pencil icon in the row.

  3. In the Edit Alert dialog, do any of the following:

    • Change the OR operator if needed. By default, the alert triggers when any individual condition is met (Matches any condition (OR)). If you want the alert to trigger when all conditions are met, change the operator to Matches All Conditions (ALL).

    • Change the condition thresholds of this alert for the CPU Used, Memory Used, and Disk Free metrics.

    • Change the Evaluation Period CoPilot uses for triggering the alert. The period is the duration of time (in minutes) where CoPilot evaluates the average of the metric(s) specified to trigger the alert. When the average value is outside the ideal operating range of your conditions, CoPilot will trigger the alert. The higher the number, the more data points CoPilot includes in the average calculation.

    • Set or change the recipients (email or webhook channels) of notification messages for the alert.

    • (Reset to Defaults) Revert back to default configuration values if you decide not to customize the alert’s configuration.

  4. Click Save.

CoPilot automatically resolves this alert when the alert metric(s) no longer meets the condition to trigger the alert. CoPilot resolves this alert only if all metrics on the affected Controller and CoPilot virtual machines do not meet the conditions any longer.

You cannot delete the Global Control Plane Health alert configuration.
