Using the noRecoveries node

Hi,

I have a quick question about the noRecoveries() function. There wasn’t much on the Documentation about this so just want some clarification.

I get that using the noRecoveries stops kapacitor from alerting me when a status moves back into the ‘OK’ state which is fine, but i was wondering. Does this just stop the alert from being sent? or does it leave it as warning/critical? I’m just curious. It is doing what i expected in stopping the OK alerts, but i’m concerned that my tick script would just keep reporting it as critical even if it has recovered.

The only reason i want to disable the OK alerts is i am working with the ping input plugin to monitor packet loss. I dont really need alerts everytime it goes back to OK. Just if it goes into critical.

Thanks
