An alert in BigPanda is a potential problem that an integrated monitoring system has detected in your infrastructure. In BigPanda, the raw event data from an integrated monitoring system is merged into an alert so that you can visualize the life cycle of a detected issue over time. For example, a CPU load alert may start with a warning event, then increase in severity with a critical event, and finally get resolved with a resolution event.

BigPanda correlates related alerts into incidents for visibility into high-level, actionable problems.
