To receive a notification when an application has stopped sending RUM events, set the condition to
below 1. This notifies when no RUM events match the monitor query in a given timeframe across all aggregate groups.
When splitting the monitor by any dimension (tag or facet) and using a
below condition, the alert is triggered if and only if there are RUM events for a given group, and the count is below the threshold—or if there are no RUM events for all of the groups.
For detailed instructions on the advanced alert options (evaluation delay, etc.), see the Monitor configuration page.
