This section is common to all the editions of IT360 - Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition [Probes only] and MSP Edition [Probes only].
Thresholds lets you, define the status of an attribute, based on specific conditions. For example, you can define a threshold, to show the status of a web server as critical, if the response time exceeds 100 seconds. Similarly, you can define a threshold to show the status as clear, if the MBean's attribute - Active is equal to true.
To define a threshold, follow the steps given below. Refer the screenshots given, for better understanding;
Go to 'Admin --> Servers & Applications' and click 'Thresholds'.
Click 'Add New', in the resulting Threshold Profile Details screen. This opens the 'Create New Threshold Profile' screen.
Now, Create New Threshold Profile for either Numeric Values, or String Values.
Specify the Threshold Name.
Specify the conditions for the different severity of the alarms. You can also specify a message that has to be appended to the alarm. By default, you can configure Critical severity. By selecting the Show Advanced Options checkbox, you can configure Warning severity and Clear severity.
Specify the number of Polls that can be scheduled, before reporting an error. By default, it takes the value from Global Settings. Refer Configuring Consecutive Polls, for setting configurations for individual monitors.
Click the Create Threshold Profile button, to add the threshold, after defining all the conditions.
Note: You can also edit the threshold created, by clicking the icon.
The thresholds, thus defined, can be associated with the attributes, for determining the status of the attributes of the Business Service. You can also associate the thresholds and actions, directly through Global Alarm Configuration, instead of the individual Monitor screen.
Refer to Associating Threshold and Action with Attributes, for more details.
