How Do I Distinguish Between Alarms and Events?
Similarities Between Alarms and Events
In the APM, the alarms and events refer to the information reported to the APM after the status of the APM changes.
Differences Between Alarms and Events
- Alarms are reported when the APM is abnormal or may cause errors. In this case, you need to take measures to fix errors. Otherwise, service exceptions may occur due to abnormal functions of the APM.
- Events are used to tell you that the status of the APM changes, but may not cause service exceptions. Events are mainly used to deliver important information. You do not need to handle events.
