Introduction : How OpenEdge Management alerts relate to rules and actions : Using monitoring plans to set up rules-related criteria

Using monitoring plans to set up rules-related criteria

The values defined for each set of rule, alert, and action elements comprise an OpenEdge Management monitoring plan. A resource monitoring plan uses:
*A rule definition and its associated threshold values
*An action that is initiated when the rule is violated
*A schedule to identify when the rule is applied
*A polling interval that determines how often the rule is evaluated
Once a polling interval (that is, the time frequency with which a resource is monitored) is set, OpenEdge Management recognizes the values you define for the monitoring plan attributes and executes them.
See Example: Reviewing polled alert fields and Example: Reviewing asynchronous alert fields for detailed information about setting up and maintaining alert-related details on monitoring plans.
