Not receiving alerts for unreachable node

I’ve used Netdata for a while, but am just starting with cloud. I’m not receiving any alerts for nodes that are down/unreachable. I’ve tried shutting down the instances to test, but Netdata never alerts me that the node is unreachable. I’ve received other alerts, so I believe things are properly configured. I’ve read that this feature is now generally available, but I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Thanks

Hey,

We know that it’s a bit convoluted, but as it is shown in the tooltip, you can only select context, not family.

Context is the group of charts (e.g net.net), while the family is the particular drive or network card.

I am pinging our product team @netdata-product, since this is tangential a feature request.

Hi @OdysLam
Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure I understand what I should be doing here—if the node were unreachable, no chart would be available to trigger an alarm, right?
