b. Select a specific rule or rule set to add, update, or remove from this plan. For details, go to Step 5.
c. Change the setting of the Trend Performance Data option.

The Available Rules page contains a dynamic list that includes only those rules not yet applied to a given monitoring plan.
Note: The step to select rules for each OpenEdge resource is the same. However, each OpenEdge resource has a unique Available Rules page. For more information about each set of rules, see Understanding and using resource monitor rules.
6. Click the rule you want to add. For example, if you select Process CPU High,the detailed rule information shown in the following dialog box appears:
Note the rule's description at the bottom of the rule page.
7. Update any unique values you want to define for this instance of the rule. Note that using this procedure as a guide, none of the steps in this procedure required you to enter values for these fields. Although these fields serve different purposes, they all can display default values.
This rule is associated only with this particular plan. When you update another plan with the same rule, you can select values that are appropriate for that particular plan.
The Threshold field associated with this page indicates the actual rule criterion. For details about rules, see Understanding and using resource monitor rules. The remaining fields on this page are alert- and action-related fields. For details, see OpenEdge Management: Alerts Guide and Reference.
8. Click Save. The Available Rules page reappears. Repeat Step 6 and Step 7 in the above step for each additional rule you want to apply to this plan. After you add and define the criteria for each rule you want to add, click Done Adding Rules on the Available Rules page.
9. Click Select Rule Sets in the Rules selected for this plan section of the Default_Schedule Monitoring Plan page to choose the rule sets you want to add to the monitoring plan.
