After deleting some unimportant alert configurations in the alert rule and restarting alertmanager, these alerts are still being reported. Do I need to restart other roles as well? Thank you!

After modifying certain alert items, it seems that there is no need to restart alertmanager. You just need to modify the configuration file in alertmanager. This is how we operate with the 5.4.0 version of the cluster. I’m not sure if the 5.0.0 version of the cluster is the same.

No need to restart.

The current issue is that even after deleting certain monitoring items, the alerts are still being reported.

Not deleting, just modifying the alert level will still report the same. Looking at the alertmanager log, it will automatically load the configuration file.

Try restarting Prometheus.

Prometheus matches records according to rule rules and sends alerts to Alertmanager. Normally, after modifying the rule, manually reloading it will take effect with curl -XPOST localhost:9090/-/reload. However, the Prometheus startup script for TiDB does not configure --web.enable-lifecycle, so the process must be restarted to take effect.

Thank you! I restarted Prometheus yesterday, but it didn’t take effect for a minute or two after the restart. I thought it didn’t work, but later I saw that it did.

It took effect, thank you!
