I'm relatively new to sumologic metrics, and I am trying to add a monitor for a situation where i have multiple metrics queries, but i only want to alert on a single one of the queries. the situation is essentially like:
#A: <query a metric for a total>
#B: <query a metric for an error count>
#C: (#B / #A) * 100
basically, #C generates a percentage metric, which i would like to monitor. however, as far as i can see, when i configure a monitor, it will alert for any value in any query going over the threshold. in this case #A and #B have lots of values over the threshold, and i don't want to alert on those. i only want to alert when values in #C go over the threshold.
is there some way to either put all queries into a single query (i don't think so), or configure a monitor to only alert on one of the queries? thanks for any help.
