Canary by Pagos generates events when it detects a change in your data outside of the thresholds customized in your triggers. Once the conditions in a trigger are met, Canary creates an event and notifies you according to your alert settings.

Here are some example events to make the concepts more concrete:

  • Approval Rate of 89% is below or at threshold of 92%
  • Total Fee Value $100 is above your historical fee measurements

Events Page

You can access a list of all your events by clicking Events in the main navigation. The Events page provides you with an inbox-style way of browsing all the events that Canary has detected and lets you drill down into the specific details of an individual event. This can be particularly important if you need to know the context around what data segment the event happened in, on what metric, and at which threshold value.

You can narrow down the list of events displayed using the following filter options at the top of the Event List:

  • Trigger - The name of the configured trigger that generated the event.
  • Metric - The metric monitored by the event's trigger (e.g. Approval Rate, Average Order Value, etc.).
  • Date Rate - The date range in which the events occurred. The date range defaults to the last 7 days; click the dropdown to select a different time period.

Event Details

Click on an event in the Events page to open a page breaking down all associated details of that event, including:

  • Trigger – The name of the trigger associated with the event. Click on the trigger name to view the trigger details.
  • Value – The value of the monitored metric at the evaluation time.
  • Threshold – The threshold value of the trigger. For simple triggers, this is the threshold value you designated; for relative percentile triggers, this is the value Canary calculated at the time of the event, given your historical data.
  • Trigger When – The direction of the trigger (Above or Below).
  • Change – The difference between the Threshold and the Value; essentially, this demonstrates how much your data deviated from the threshold when the anomaly occurred.
  • Time – The date and time when Canary logged the event.
  • Similar Events – A list of other events generated by the same trigger.
