Synopsis

  • Fetches details about one or multiple Alarm resources in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Lists the alarms for the specified compartment. For important limits information, see Limits on Monitoring.

  • This call is subject to a Monitoring limit that applies to the total number of requests across all alarm operations. Monitoring might throttle this call to reject an otherwise valid request when the total rate of alarm operations exceeds 10 requests, or transactions, per second (TPS) for a given tenancy.

  • If alarm_id is specified, the details of a single Alarm will be returned.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
alarm_id
string
The OCID of an alarm.
Required to get a specific alarm.

aliases: id
api_user
string
The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_ID environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the user is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the user's OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_fingerprint
string
Fingerprint for the key pair being used. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_FINGERPRINT environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key fingerprint is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the key pair's fingerprint value please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_key_file
string
Full path and filename of the private key (in PEM format). If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_FILE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the private key is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). If the key is encrypted with a pass-phrase, the api_user_key_pass_phrase option must also be provided.
api_user_key_pass_phrase
string
Passphrase used by the key referenced in api_user_key_file, if it is encrypted. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_PASS_PHRASE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key passphrase is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location).
auth_purpose
string
    Choices:
  • service_principal
The auth purpose which can be used in conjunction with 'auth_type=instance_principal'. The default auth_purpose for instance_principal is None.
auth_type
string
    Choices:
  • api_key ←
  • instance_principal
  • instance_obo_user
  • resource_principal
The type of authentication to use for making API requests. By default auth_type="api_key" based authentication is performed and the API key (see api_user_key_file) in your config file will be used. If this 'auth_type' module option is not specified, the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_AUTH_TYPE, if any, is used. Use auth_type="instance_principal" to use instance principal based authentication when running ansible playbooks within an OCI compute instance.
cert_bundle
string

Required to list multiple alarms.
compartment_id_in_subtree
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When true, returns resources from all compartments and subcompartments. The parameter can only be set to true when compartmentId is the tenancy OCID (the tenancy is the root compartment). A true value requires the user to have tenancy-level permissions. If this requirement is not met, then the call is rejected. When false, returns resources from only the compartment specified in compartmentId. Default is false.
config_file_location
string
Path to configuration file. If not set then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to ~/.oci/config.
config_profile_name
string
The profile to load from the config file referenced by config_file_location. If not set, then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_PROFILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to the "DEFAULT" profile in config_file_location.

  • ACTIVE
  • DELETING
  • DELETED
A filter to return only alarms that match the given lifecycle state exactly. When not specified, only alarms in the ACTIVE lifecycle state are listed.

The OCID of the compartment containing the metric being evaluated by the alarm.

Sample:
ocid1.metriccompartment.oc1..xxxxxxEXAMPLExxxxxx
 
metric_compartment_id_in_subtree
boolean
on success
When true, the alarm evaluates metrics from all compartments and subcompartments. The parameter can only be set to true when metricCompartmentId is the tenancy OCID (the tenancy is the root compartment). A true value requires the user to have tenancy-level permissions. If this requirement is not met, then the call is rejected. When false, the alarm evaluates metrics from only the compartment specified in metricCompartmentId. Default is false.
Example: `true`
Returned for get operation

Sample:
True
 
namespace
string
on success
The source service or application emitting the metric that is evaluated by the alarm.
Example: `oci_computeagent`

Sample:

pending_duration
string
on success
The period of time that the condition defined in the alarm must persist before the alarm state changes from "OK" to "FIRING". For example, a value of 5 minutes means that the alarm must persist in breaching the condition for five minutes before the alarm updates its state to "FIRING".
The duration is specified as a string in ISO 8601 format (`PT10M` for ten minutes or `PT1H` for one hour). Minimum: PT1M. Maximum: PT1H. Default: PT1M.
Under the default value of PT1M, the first evaluation that breaches the alarm updates the state to "FIRING".
The alarm updates its status to "OK" when the breaching condition has been clear for the most recent minute.
Example: `PT5M`
Returned for get operation

Sample:
pending_duration_example
 
query
string
on success
The Monitoring Query Language (MQL) expression to evaluate for the alarm. The Alarms feature of the Monitoring service interprets results for each returned time series as Boolean values, where zero represents false and a non-zero value represents true. A true value means that the trigger rule condition has been met. The query must specify a metric, statistic, interval, and trigger rule (threshold or absence). Supported values for interval depend on the specified time range. More interval values are supported for smaller time ranges. You can optionally specify dimensions and grouping functions. Supported grouping functions: `grouping()`, `groupBy()`. For details about Monitoring Query Language (MQL), see L(Monitoring Query Language (MQL) Reference,https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/Monitoring/Reference/mql.htm). For available dimensions, review the metric definition for the supported service. See Supported Services.
Example of threshold alarm:
-----
CpuUtilization[1m]{availabilityDomain="cumS:PHX-AD-1"}.groupBy(availabilityDomain).percentile(0.9) > 85
-----
Example of absence alarm:
-----
CpuUtilization[1m]{availabilityDomain="cumS:PHX-AD-1"}.absent()
-----

Sample:
query_example

Default value: null (notifications are not re-submitted).
Example: `PT2H`

Sample:
repeat_notification_duration_example

on success
The time between calculated aggregation windows for the alarm. Supported value: `1m`
Returned for get operation

resource_group
string
on success

Only one resource group can be applied per metric. A valid resourceGroup value starts with an alphabetical character and includes only alphanumeric characters, periods (.), underscores (_), hyphens (-), and dollar signs ($).
