Monitoring Plans and Rules for Servers, DataServers, Messengers, and Adapters : Working with rule sets

Working with rule sets

You associate a rule set with one or more resources through a monitoring plan. Rule sets are stored by resource type in the OpenEdge Management Component Library. The following links allow you to create OpenEdge-related rule sets:
*Create AppServer Rule Set
*Create NameServer Rule Set
*Create WebSpeed Rule Set
You cannot create rule sets for AppServer Internet Adapters, WebSpeed Messengers, SonicMQ Adapters, Web Services Adapters (for OpenEdge SOAP Web Services), OE Web Servers, or DataServers. You can, however, use and modify the default rule sets provided for each of these resources.
1. To display the OpenEdge Management Component Library page where these links appear, click Library.
Note: The Log File Rule Set link on the OpenEdge Management Component Library page allows you to create rule sets that are shared among all log file resource monitors.
Rule sets provide a way for you to manage many broker resource types by sharing rule definitions. In this way, you create a common set of rules that you can associate with multiple resource instances.
Each rule set you create is stored in the OpenEdge Management Component Library, making the rule set available for use and reuse by other resource monitors within a given resource type.
You can also add individual rules to a monitoring plan, whether or not the rules are part of any rule set. If you include a rule in a monitoring plan's rule set and then add the same rule again with modifications, the rule in the rule set is overridden by the rule with the modifications.
OpenEdge Management provides a default rule set for each OpenEdge resource type as it does for other resource types. For example, when an AppServer broker resource is added to OpenEdge Management, a default monitoring plan with a default rule set is assigned to it.
