Reduce alert rule evaluation below 10s

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Reduce minimum alert rule evaluation interval below 10s

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Changed unified_alerting_min_interval to 1s

  • What happened?
    Grafana will not boot, error: Failed to start grafana. error: value of setting 'min_interval' should be greater than the base interval (10s)

  • What did you expect to happen?
    The minimum interval to decrease

Is it possible to evalute rules every <10s? I can’t seem to find what the ‘base interval’ is and how to modify it
