  7. 7. Concept of “poloxy”
  8. 8. How “poloxy” works In short, it’s just an alert proxy. 1. Monitoring systems send alerts to “poloxy” instead of their recipients. 2. “Poloxy” API enqueues received alerts into Queue. 3. “Poloxy” worker dequeues alerts every minute or so, and delivers them to original recipients.
  9. 9. Control Alert Frequency ❏ Alerts can be merged into one for each recipient in each worker iteration (ex. 1 minute). ❏ Worker stores alerts history => “snooze” delivering repeating alerts for a while. ❏ Categorize alerts in hierarchy by “grouping” feature of “poloxy.” ❏ For visibility of service health ❏ For customizing alerts merging method
