Axiom introduces match monitors, a new type of monitor that filters for key events and sends them to you.

A monitor is a background task that periodically runs a query that you define and notifies you about the monitor output. Previously, you could only create threshold monitors. Threshold monitors aggregate event data over time, and when the results cross a threshold, Axiom sends you an alert.

Match monitors are a new type of monitor that lets you continuously filter your log data and send you matching events. For example, you set up a match monitor to filter for events where the duration of a request is longer than five seconds or where the level of severity of an error is critical. As a result, Axiom alerts you about every event that matches the filters you set.
