@@ -37,10 +37,21 @@ Task sensitivity
 A task can also have a specific sensitivity set. Sensitivity denotes
 how failures are treated, and when to alert about state changes:
 
-- `low`: Alerting only happens if all currently active nodes agree that the test has failed,
e.g. the service is down completely.
-- `default`: Alerting happens if a majority of nodes agree that the test has failed. This
is the default behavior and balances out the need for speedy alerting versus the need for
fewer false positives.
-- `high`: Alerting happens if more than one node sees failures. While more sensitive than
the default, it still removes a fair bit of false positives by requiring confirmation of a
reported failure by at least one other node.
-- `twitchy`: Alerting happens if one or more nodes register failure. This may be useful for
services that have guaranteed service level agreements.

 It should be noted that if you run a setup of Warble with only one, or
 very few nodes attached, the sensitivity levels may differ very little
