Setting up Resource Monitoring : Creating a resource monitoring plan : Sharing rules and rule sets

Sharing rules and rule sets

You can logically group multiple rule definitions for certain (complex) rule types, such as log file monitors, AppServers, NameServers, WebSpeed Transaction Servers, and databases. These rule combinations, called rule sets, are established and stored in the OpenEdge Management Component Library. A rule set comprises one or more rule definitions.
One of the advantages of using rule sets is that they are late-binding. A change to the rule set (such as adding, deleting, or modifying a rule definition) will propagate to all monitoring plans that use the rule set.
By sharing groups of rule definitions, you can manage a large number of resource monitors consistently and efficiently. For example, once a rule set exists, you can associate it with a log file monitor's monitoring plan. When the monitoring plan is active and the log file monitor is polled, OpenEdge Management can evaluate each rule in the set. See Monitoring File Resources for details about how log file monitors use rule sets. See OpenEdge Management: Database Management for details about database resources and rule sets, and OpenEdge Management: Servers, DataServers, Messengers, and Adapters for details about AppServer, NameServer, and WebSpeed rule sets.
