Auto discovery grace period

hi there

we use LibreNMS for monitoring our AWS env but have lots of alerts when new instances are terraformed as they take up to 10 minutes to kickstart from scratch and during that period we get :

  • Device filling up
  • Service not running

messages as the device is installing (so disk space getting used rapidly) and the services associated to that instance type are not yet installed/running

Is it possible to have a X min grace period where only ping is tested for newly found instances - or even rebooting instances as some programs like JBoss can take a long time to come up?

Thanks :slight_smile:

When you define your alert, you can set a delay. So for rebooting instances etc, you can solve it easily. You can also add in your alert conditions that uptime must be more than 10 minutes for any alert to be generated. That should help.
