    Ramakrishna,

    You've done the correct thing: Scheduled Searches.  To clarify, you use Scheduled Searches when you want to create alerts based on your logs, and you use Metric Monitors when you want to create alerts based on your Metrics (i.e. your host server metrics, AWS metrics, etc.).

    To take it a step further, you can create Metrics out of your logs (see Logs-to-Metrics), and then use Metrics Monitors, but I think it would be overkill in your case if the Scheduled Searches do the trick.

    Cheers,
