Creating a resource monitoring plan

When you create a monitoring plan, you provide both a monitoring definition and one or more rule definitions.
The monitoring definition includes:
*The schedule selected from all the schedules that are available. The schedule specifies when the plan is active, and the available schedules include only those schedules that will not overlap with schedules already in use for a resource.
*A polling interval, which indicates the frequency with which this resource's rules are checked by OpenEdge Management.
*An option to enable alerts for this resource. Enabling alerts means that alerts will be generated while the plan is active.
*An option to store, or trend, the performance data collected by this resource to the OpenEdge Management Trend Database while the plan is active. See Trending considerations for details.
*The number of polls after which performance data will be trended to the OpenEdge Management Trend Database.
The rule definition identifies:
*When to generate an alert for the resource
*What level of alert severity will cause OpenEdge Management to generate an alert
*The number of failed polls after which OpenEdge Management generates an alert
*The action that OpenEdge Management performs when an alert is generated
*The number of successful polls after which OpenEdge Management clears an alert
*The action OpenEdge Management performs when an alert is cleared
* Trending considerations
* Choosing a schedule for the monitoring plan
* Adding rules to the monitoring plan
* Sharing rules and rule sets
