Detect when an input is not receiving messages

Is there any way to monitor inputs if they are receiving messages or not, and alert when an input stops receiving messages?

I think you can set an aggregation where count() == 0 over x time to fire off an alert. I haven’t done it’s worth testing (can’t test at the moment)

It Works great, only for one stream. I need to create rules for all the streams separetely then.

Yea - alerts as described tend to be set up for one alert per event type - I bent mine a bit to allow events and their alerts to be covered by as few Definitions and notifications as possible.
