Server down rule
The bank created a “Server down” rule for a monitored server.
The rule provides the following instructions for IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor:
When a server down message ID is detected for a monitored server, a high-severity alert is generated in the Active Alerts Monitor. An email notification is sent to the monitoring staff.
When the bank defined the rule, they selected the “Server down” action they defined earlier.
|Description||This rule is triggered when a monitored server goes down.|
A schedule was not required because the rule needs to be in effect always.
The following graphic shows the building blocks that comprise the “Server down” rule:
When the Message ID indicating that a server is down,
is detected, the "Server down" rule is triggered. Because there are
no time constraints for this rule, no schedule is needed. When the
rule is triggered, IBM Sterling Control Center
an alert and sends an email message to the "Monitoring staff" list.
