How to setup custom email alerts?

How to setup custom email alerts?

Expert Contributor

I would like to setup some hourly email alerts for some services (Flume, Impala, etc) with the  summary of the hours metrics. For example, put successes or failures in the part hour of Flume service channels, etc.


Is there a way to set these up? Any documentation on what all metrics are available for each service?
