I’m new to Grafana and I’m trying to set up an alert based on a Unique Count series. Trouble is, I cannot get the configuration to work as I want.
I’m using Elasticsearch as a datasource using a Metricbeat populated index. The goal is to monitor the number of servers that are up. Metricbeat stats period are send every 10 seconds, so the idea was to count unique values of
host.name.keyword with the time interval set to a period greater than that (say, 1 minute)
The resulting graph is working perfectly.
When setting the alert however, I’m getting values that I do not understands (here 0.640)
Even ignore the last minute of data does not help.
What Am I doing wrong or missing here ?
EDIT : Forgot to mention that I’m using Grafana 6.2.0-beta1 as I need ES 7.x compatibility.
