Filters create a set of rules, which determine how monitoring responses are processed, or displayed, including:
- Filters determine when and how alerts are sent.
- Filters refine when alerts are received for errors.
- Filters set parameters for the organization of reports.
Customization to specific needs
Filters customize the monitoring system to specific needs, for example:
- Setting up an Error Response Filter to ignore an error unless certain error conditions are met.
- One type of error you may wish to filter are HTTP status codes.
- Applying an Error Response Filter to a Report in order to refine the responses delivered to the Report as data.
