The Monitoring Policies tab organizes thresholds by event source group.
To access this tab, go to ADMIN > Event Sources. The Manage tab is displayed. Select the Monitoring Policies tab.
This workflow shows the overall process for configuring event sources.
The Monitoring Policies tab consists of three panels:
- Event Groups Panel
- Thresholds Panel
- Notifications Panel
This is an example of the Monitoring Policies tab.
|1||Displays the Groups panel.|
|2||Displays the Thresholds panel.|
|3||Displays the Notifications panel.|
Event Groups Panel
The group selected in this panel determines which thresholds appear in the Thresholds panel. You can define a set of thresholds for each event source group. Notice that the groups are listed in a specific order:
- Drag and drop groups to change the specified order.
- The higher a group is listed, the higher the precedence for that group's thresholds: RSA NetWitness Suite checks the thresholds in the order provided in this panel. Thus, your highest priority groups should be at the top of this list
This is an example of the Thresholds panel for an event source group.
The Thresholds Panel contains the following features.
This is an example of the Notifications panel for an event source group.
The following table describes the fields on the Notifications panel
The following are sample notifications, based on the supplied Templates.
For email notifications, the third column, Alarm Type, specifies whether the triggered alarm was based on a user threshold, or the baseline data being out of normal bounds. If you have automatic monitoring or notifications turned off, you will not receive any Automatic notifications. The same is true for Syslog and SNMP, except those notifications are formatted differently.
