Sticky Agents: Select “any of” if you want an alert sent when any set of agents meet the alert condition(s) in consecutive rounds. Select “the same” if you want an alert sent only if the same set of agents meet the alert conditions(s) across multiple rounds. For example, an alert rule is configured for if the same agent trips a specified threshold in three consecutive rounds. The Atlanta cloud agent trips the rule in round one, the Ashburn cloud agent trips it in round two, and the San Francisco cloud agent trips it in round three. In this scenario, the alert rule would not trigger when using sticky agents. Either Atlanta, Ashburn, or San Francisco would need to trip the rule in three consecutive rounds to trigger the alert. In addition, keep in mind that location alerts are triggered and cleared on a single-round basis, independently of the global alert. Therefore, a location alert appearing on a rule using sticky agents does not always imply that the location was part of the set of agents that met the "same agents X out of Y times” criteria, just that the agent met the alert condition(s) at least once while the global alert was active. Note: Sticky Agents are currently only available for Cloud and Enterprise Agent alerts.
