IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) Local automatically notifies you when a node or pod goes down or when you're at risk of overloading a resource.

By default, DSX Local issues alerts when:

  • CPU usage on a node goes above 90%
  • Memory usage on a node goes above 90%
  • Disk usage on a node goes above 90%
  • A node in the cluster goes down
  • A pod fails
  • A pod is not running or is in an unknown state for more than 5 minutes

If you want to change the threshold at which alerts are issued, you can configure them on the Settings page. For more information, see Set up Data Science Experience Local.

DSX Local also issues a follow-up alert once the problem is resolved.

Tip: If DSX Local is configured to connect to your SMTP server, each DSX admin receives alerts through email.

When you have alerts, the alert icon displays the number of unread alerts in your queue:
