Monitoring a system, network, or file resource: an overview

Using OpenEdge Management, you can monitor specific resources.
To monitor a resource:
1. Select the type of resource you want to monitor.
2. Define the resource monitor's properties. The properties you define depend upon whether you select a system, network, or file resource and can include name, description, file name, host, or port, for example.
3. Create a monitoring plan for the resource, which includes:
*A monitoring plan definition — Identifies the schedule you want OpenEdge Management to follow when monitoring, how often you want OpenEdge Management to poll the resource, and whether you want to enable alerts for the resource. Alerts notify you of potential problems with the resource's performance.
*Rule definitions — Specifies under what circumstances OpenEdge Management generates an alert for the resource and what action OpenEdge Management should take, if any, as a result of the alert. You can choose from several different actions, such as sending an e-mail to a specific recipient, or adding an entry to a particular log file.
*Rule sets (for log files and OpenEdge server components) — Groups one or more rules in a logical sequence
*Schedules — Schedules a block of monitoring time
4. Optionally, use the Configuration Advisor to calculate more meaningful threshold values for resource rules.
* Monitoring a database or other OpenEdge resource
