Configuring Thresholds

Home  Previous  Next

When you are creating or editing a policy, you can add and configure monitor thresholds. The Add Thresholds dialog box presents threshold configuration fields for BMC ProactiveNet monitors that are configured through Central Monitoring Administration.

For details about baselines and Key Performance Indicators (KPI), see BMC ProactiveNet Central Monitoring Administration or BMC ProactiveNet documentation or refer to the Managing Baselines and Key Performance Indicators section. For details about the monitored attributes, refer to the specific monitor type in the Reference Guide section.

Before you begin

Ensure that your monitor configuration is complete before thresholds are applied. Thresholds cannot be applied to monitors that are not configured through Central Monitoring Administration. If you have not done so already, please refer to the section Configuring Monitor Settings.

Recommended Thresholds

Thresholds define acceptable high and/or low values for the data collected. Thresholds can be created as part of a policy that can be applied to multiple monitor types on multiple BMC PATROL Agents.
The Reference Guide provides a list of monitor types with their respective attributes and, when meaningful, a recommended threshold.
