Wikidata related Icinga alerts are defined in puppet

The status of alerts can be seen at

All alerts report to the "wikidata" contact group, which can be seen at

Internally in WMDE there is a wikidata-monitoring mailing list you can subscribe to, also notifications will land in the wikidata IRC channel.


One of the Icinga checks monitors the alert status of the wikidata alerts dashboard on Grafana.

The dashboard can be found here:

Edits: Wikidata edit rate

The edit rate on Wikidata can be a good indicator that something somewhere is wrong, although it will not always indicate exactly what that is.

You can view the edits dashboard at

If MAXLAG is high, that might be a reason for low edit rate.

You may want to investigate what is going on with the API (as all edits go via the API)*

API: Max p95 execute time for write modules

Investigate the wb api @*

SQL: Rows read, above 10 million, for 2 minutes

This is likely too much reading.
