Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
HAProxyDown not Firing

HAProxyDown should be Firing

The HAProxyDown alert fires when haproxy is down, not when there are no openshift router pods running.
We will fix the message so that it reports that "haproxy is down" to avoid confusion.

ClusterOperatorDegraded and ClusterOperatorDown alerts should fire if no router pods are scheduled or running.

For example:

attempted to verify in 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-04-21-084059, pull #597 is listed in release status for this build, but  Prometheus rule definition is still in old way of description:  HAProxy metrics are reporting that the router is down.  Suspect pull #597 is not in this build.   Will wait for next build to verify
