How do I know which type of SLC to use?
There are three types of SLCs in IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor: standard SLCs, wildcard SLCs, and workflow SLCs.
If you are interested in knowing when a single Process or Process step runs or fails to run, use either a standard SLC or wildcard SLC. With wildcard SLCs you specify a generic name (using a wildcard character) rather than a specific, individual one. So, if you know the specific Process name, server name, etc., use a standard SLC.
If you want to ensure that multiple Processes and/or Process steps run, use a workflow SLC.
