The AutoActions automate the monitoring of your compute cluster by allowing you to define complex, actionable rules on different cluster metrics.


Alerts can be generated by setting AutoActions. For example, you can use an AutoAction to notify you about a situation that requires manual intervention, such as resource contention or stuck jobs.

The Unravel server processes AutoActions by:

  • Collecting various metrics from the cluster.

  • Aggregating the metrics according to user-defined triggers (rule) and scope.

  • Detecting violations.

  • Executing the defined actions for each rule violation.

Each rule consists of the:

  • Trigger Conditions are the rules (triggers) that determine when an AutoAction is violated, for example, apps using more than 2 GB of memory.

  • Scope for which the triggers are valid. For example, the app is owned by User X and on cluster Y.

  • Actions to take when the AutoAction is triggered in the correct scope, for example, send an email to User X.
