Integrate Opsgenie with Netdata

What does Opsgenie offer Netdata users?

Netdata troubleshoots slowdowns and anomalies in your infrastructure with thousands of metrics, interactive visualizations, and insightful health alarms. With the Netdata Integration, Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Opsgenie has a specific API for Netdata Integration, Netdata sends alerts to Opsgenie and Opsgenie handles the automatic creation of alerts.

Functionality of the integration

  • Netdata troubleshoot slowdowns and anomalies in your infrastructure and creates alarms from this. When an alert is created in Netdata, an alert is also created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.

  • When values are back to normal, the alerts are cleared in Netdata. When an alert is cleared in Netdata, an alert is also closed in Opsgenie.
