  2. In the When selection list, select the trigger type for your alert, then define your desired thresholds.
    The options and settings are as follows:

    Absolute Value

    The Alert will be triggered if the value of the metric is above or below the defined thresholds for the current period. (Note that this option does not compare the change in value vs. the previous period.)

    Absolute Change

    The Alert will be triggered if the value of the metric changes in the current time period vs. the previous time period increases or decreases more than the defined thresholds.

    The metric is automatically compared to the previous time period defined by your overall analysis.

    Percent Change

    The Alert will be triggered if the percent change in the value of the metric in the current time period vs the previous time period increases or decreases more than the defined thresholds.

    The metric is automatically compared to the previous time period defined by your overall analysis.
