Monitoring System Resources : Reviewing system resource default values

Reviewing system resource default values

OpenEdge Management provides various default values for system, network, file, database, and OpenEdge server resources. You see these default values when you create a resource monitor and define its monitoring plan.
If the default values are acceptable to you, you can use them with the resource monitors you create. If, however, you want to change the default values, you can do so as follows:
*For each resource monitor you create, adjust the values on a per-resource basis so that you get the feedback data you want for that resource. Each new resource monitor is still initially created with the OpenEdge Management default.
*Change the actual defaults provided by OpenEdge Management so that each new resource monitor you create already has the most useful default values.
Changing default values does not affect any resource monitor already created.
To display default values for system resources:
1. Select Options > Resource Monitor Defaults in the OpenEdge Management console.
The OpenEdge Management Resource Monitoring Defaults page appears.
2. Click System Resource Defaults.
The System Resource Defaults page appears.
3. Review the following defined default values:
*Polling Interval — The frequency with which this resource's rules are checked by OpenEdge Management—for example, every 300 seconds
*Alert if CPU activity/disk activity/file system usage/system memory usage/virtual memory usage exceeds — The threshold percentage of activity or usage that causes OpenEdge Management to generate an alert
*Trend — Whether you want performance data about this resource stored in the OpenEdge Management Trend Database
*Trend every — How often you want the performance data stored in the OpenEdge Management Trend Database
4. Change the default values, as necessary, and click Submit.
The new defaults will be in place when you create a new disk or file system resource. If the new resource the default values are still not what you want for a particular resource, you can change the values of the individual resource at that time.
Note that you can revert back to the original OpenEdge Management-supplied default values at any time by selecting Restore Defaults.
