many other software packages).  It then has another tool called
alertmanager that let's you run queries at defined intervals and send
alerts if queries meet conditions [1].

alertmanager soon.  But what sort of queries do we want alerts on?

We can also query data about vms because cAdvisor collects data about vms :)
