Set up your first alert in Splunk by using the same search used on the dashboard panel.
- [Instructor] Now that we've looked at some of the theory,…let's try setting up a simple alert.…First we'll start in the Search and Reporting app.…Let's do a 404 search.…I'm gonna do sourcetype=…access_combined…and AND 404.…And I'm also gonna limit this to just a one hour window.…And click search.…This looks like the data I'm looking for.…
So let me go up to Save As and select Alert.…I'm gonna call this Critical 404s…and we're gonna come up with a threshold…where the number of 404s we think is critical.…If we look at some of the options in the alert here,…you see we've got an interesting choice to make.…We can either make this a scheduled alert…or a real-time alert.…Let's try scheduled and explore the options there.…I'm going to say run every hour.…
Zero minutes past the hour is fine.…And we wanna set the alert condition,…so let's say a thousand 404s is when we think it's critical.…So once the number of results reaches a thousand,…we wanna send off this alert.…We don't wanna say for each result…because that means if it reached a thousand,…
