The best practices for policies are listed here.

  • Use policies sparingly

    Try to keep a few different policies and apply policies on groups of objects. Meanwhile, it is possible to apply any policy to a concrete object.

  • Clone policies to edit and make changes

    If it is necessary to edit or change some of the content (metrics, alerts, and capacity settings), it is recommended to use a distinguished policy (can be even a currently active policy) before making or applying any change.

  • Do NOT change or edit the default policy

    At any time, do not directly edit or change the default policy, as it has an impact on all existing objects
