Configuring Dependencies and Alarm Rules
Dependencies: They determine the health / availability of a Monitors. They consist of the dependent parameters of the Monitor based on which the severity of the health and availability are determined.
Alarm Rules: They determine the health / availability of a Monitors.
Dependent Devices: You can configure a dependent device in such a manner that if the availability of the dependent device is down, all the Monitors availability under the dependent device will be down. Also, you have the option of supressing all the alarms caused by the dependent device.
Configuring Dependencies for Monitors: By configuring dependencies, you can specify whether the health or availability depends on all or few dependencies. The severity is also determined by order of severity which is given below:
For example, If there are 9 dependencies in a Monitor where three are critical, three are warning, and three are clear and the severity of Health of Monitor Group is based on any three selected dependencies, then the severity will be Critical as per the order of severity.
Click on a Monitor under the SQL Server.
Click on the Configure Alarm icon of the respective Monitor. This opens the Configure Alarm screen.
Choose Health or Availability from the combo box. The dependent attributes will also be shown in the list box under dependencies.
Select and move the required attributes from the left box to the right box using >> button. By default, all the dependencies for the attributes of the monitors are added in the right box. You can also remove the default settings using the Action / Alarm Settings option.
Specify whether the rule
for determining the severity for health or availability.
Depends on all selected parameters: The severity of health depends on the severity of all the selected parameters.
Depends on any "n" selected parameters: The severity of health depends on only 'n' selected parameters. The number of parameter, n has to be selected from the combo box.
Click Save All to complete configuring dependencies.
