Alert dependencies

Using alert inhibition rules, Alertmanager decreases alert noise by suppressing dependent alerts notifications to provide a clearer view on the cloud status and simplify troubleshooting. Alert inhibition rules are enabled by default. The following table describes the dependency between the OpenStack-related alerts. For other alerts, see Mirantis Container Cloud Operations Guide: Alert dependencies.

Once an alert from the Alert column raises, the alert from the Inhibits and rules column will be suppressed with the Inhibited status in the Alertmanager web UI.

The Inhibits and rules column lists the labels and conditions, if any, for the inhibition to apply.
