Web path alert profiles are sets of conditions used to identify when a web path is operating outside of acceptable performance criteria. When a threshold is crossed, an alert is triggered. APM provides several system-defined web path alert profiles you can use to configure alerts on workflows and web paths. You can also define your own profiles.
