TICK script backoff support


is there a way to enable a backoff period for the same alert?

@mantzas You can always modify the time period in the .window() node to set the max period between alerts. What exactly are you trying to do?

@jackzampolin let’s say i have a batch that runs every minute. When a alert is raise in the first minute i do not want to raise a alert in the next minute and spam the receiver of the alert. A backoff period like 10min would allow the same alert to be fired after 10min of the first alert. Is that clearer?

@mantzas Yup! This sounds like a feature request for kapacitor. Would you mind opening an issue there so our team can prioritize it?

just did it!
