Enable asset monitoring

Here's how you set up monitoring for a table.
Our specialized config module landing page has been crafted to provide you with a straightforward journey as you create a range of monitoring test types for your valuable data assets.
Check out the Config module to set up asset monitoring.

Create & Modify Tab

When users navigate to our config module, they will be directed to the "Create & Modify" tab. Here, users have the opportunity to create and manage different monitoring types.
Our type of monitoring types include:
  • Freshness: Monitors how long it's been since the table was last updated and creates an incident if it's been too long for a period of time.
  • Volume: Keeps track of how many rows are added to the table and creates an incident if it goes over the threshold.
  • Field Health: Out-of-the-box tests are available for columns to check for null values, uniqueness, range (min/max), and cardinality.
  • Schema Drift: Identify changes in the schema, such as the addition, removal, or alteration of tables, columns, or data types.
  • Custom SQL: Create your own monitoring queries in SQL to address specific test cases.
  • Grouped-by: Apply monitoring to distinct logical groups within your table by choosing a column for segmentation.
  • Job Failure: Detect failures occurring in the transformation or orchestration processes.
When monitoring is activated for an asset, you can find a list of active, inactive, and disabled monitors under the "All Monitors" tab.

All Monitors Tab

Within the "All Monitors" tab, users have the capability to edit, enable/disable, or even delete any previously configured monitors. To access these options, simply click on the ellipsis menu (︙), located at the far right of the selected monitor.
