Monitoring Plans and Rules for Servers, DataServers, Messengers, and Adapters : OpenEdge Management resource monitoring overview

OpenEdge Management resource monitoring overview

OpenEdge Management uses active monitoring plans and their associated rules to support many fundamental resource-related features. Depending on the particular resource, these features might include data trending, data analysis, rule evaluation, or alert notification.
When OpenEdge Management discovers any of the OpenEdge resource types, it automatically creates a resource monitoring plan. The values OpenEdge Management provides include a default name for the resource, and default values for each individual resource's monitoring plan and its associated rule set.
For example, if OpenEdge Management discovers a NameServer resource whose server name is NS2, then it creates a monitoring plan called the NS2 monitoring plan and immediately associates the default NameServer rule set with NS2. (You can edit or modify any OpenEdge monitoring plan and rules, setting your own values at any time.)
Other recognizable resource types—database, system, network, and file resources, for example—also require monitoring plans and rules. All OpenEdge Management resources share standardized ways to perform monitoring operations and a common terminology with which to reference the resource activities.
Review the resource monitoring details provided in this section. This information will help orient you to the basics of resource monitoring. Then, follow the procedures outlined in the Maintaining monitoring plans and Understanding and using resource monitor rules to use resource monitoring with server, DataServer, Messenger, and Adapter resources.
