Real-time Alerts in Wowizer #

Alerting is a critical component of maintaining a healthy Qlik Sense environment, proactively identifying anomalies and potential issues. Wowizer, a powerful performance monitoring tool, excels in this regard with tailored alerting capabilities for Qlik Sense. It continuously monitors CPU and memory usage, reload times, log flows, and user interactions, promptly triggering alerts when predefined thresholds or unusual patterns emerge.

These alerts serve as early warnings, enabling swift responses to emerging problems, preventing critical issues. Wowizer’s alerting feature offers comprehensive insights into the nature of problems, specifying affected components and their impact.

Alert masking & consolidation

Wowizer’s alert masking is an essential strategy in managing Wowizer-triggered alerts to prevent unnecessary notification overload, ensuring that only the most critical alerts reach your team, reducing noise, and maintaining focus on actionable insights. However, it’s important to note that all alerts are still captured on the alerting dashboard. 

Multiple alerts are consolidated within a single notification.
