InterSystems System Alerting and Monitoring (SAM) is a cluster monitoring solution for InterSystems IRIS data platform version 2020.1 and later. Whether your application runs on a local mirrored pair or in the cloud with multiple application and data servers, you can use SAM to monitor your application.
InterSystems SAM is a great tool to monitor your InterSystems IRIS and InterSystems IRIS For Health clusters on prem or in a cloud environment. This article describes how you can implement a customized alert handler. This is currently an undocumented and most likely an unknown feature of InterSystems SAM. With future releases it will be probably made easier to leverage this useful concept.
With this article, I would like to show you how easily and dynamically System Alerting and Monitoring(or SAM for short) can be configured. The use case could be that of a fast and agile CI/CD provisioning pipeline where you want to run your unit-tests but also stress-tests and you would want to quickly be able to see if those tests are successful or how they are stressing the systems and your application (the InterSystems IRIS backend SAM API is extendable for your APM implementation).
