Ddosify monitors CPU, memory, disk space, and network usage, sending alerts when exceeding thresholds.
Alerts feature is available on Ddosify Cloud and Ddosify Self-hosted Enterprise.
- Comprehensive Monitoring: Continuously tracks the health of your system's vital signs like CPU, Memory, Disk and Network.
- Customizable Alerts: Set up alerts based on specific conditions that matter to you.
- Scalable: The system scales with your needs, whether you’re monitoring a single node or a thousand nodes.
On Ddosify, click the Observability tab and then the Alerts tab. On this page, you can see the list of alerts that you have added before. To add a new alert, click on the + Add Alert button.
Ddosify Add Alert
Give a name and select your Kubernetes Cluster.
Ddosify Add Alert
Monitor All Current & Future Nodes checkbox is selected by default. This means all current and future nodes will be monitored, irrespective of the K8s autoscale. However, if you want to monitor only specific nodes, you can uncheck the Monitor All Current & Future Nodes checkbox and manually select the nodes you want to monitor.
Ddosify Add Alert - Select K8s Cluster
Select Metric for alerting. Here are the metrics that Ddosify supports:
These metrics are similar to their percent-used counterparts but provide the raw values in bytes, giving you an exact memory usage figure.
After you select the Metric, select Threshold and Threshold Value.
Select Priority, which will be used for urgency level. P1 represents the highest priority, while P5 is the lowest. This helps prioritize response to alerts and is used for escalation in integrated systems like Opsgenie and PagerDuty.
Optionally, you can add Tags.
Select Window Duration to specify the time window when the metric value should meet the threshold condition to trigger an alert. This helps prevent false positives and ensures consistent problematic behavior before alerting. All the data points in the window duration should be alerted to make an alert.
For example, in this configuration, an alert will be triggered if the RAM Used Percent exceeds 80 for at least 30 seconds.
Ddosify Add Alert Configuration

Ddosify Add Alert E-mail
You can add another integration with e-mail notification by clicking the New Integration button. In this configuration, if an alert is triggered, a notification will be sent using e-mail, Slack and OpsGenie.
Ddosify Add Alert Notifications
Click Save Alert to save the alert. Every 30 seconds, the condition will be checked and if an alert is triggered.
Ddosify alert system sends notifications on the 1st, 10th, 20th, and 30th occurrence of an issue. This allows you to stay on top of critical events with minimal distractions.
On the Alerts page, you can see your alerts as a list. You can enable/disable alerts by active column, Edit and Delete alerts. Status columns can be OK if everything is fine and Alert if there is an alert condition.
Ddosify Alerts List
You can access the Alert History by clicking the Alert name in the Alert list. In this section, you can see Alert Count, OK Count and Alert Rate with time period (Last 5 min, Last 30 min, ...). In this example, the Alert Rate is 26.09% in the last 30 minutes.
The table shows the Time, Rule, Actual value on the window, Priority and Integrations for Alerted checks.
