What is the correlation between SLCs and rules?

SLCs generate SLC type events when certain conditions occur or fail to occur because Processes either execute or fail to execute.

Processes can include the following items:

  • Sterling Connect:Direct® Processes
  • Sterling B2B Integrator business process activities
  • FTP gets and puts
  • The movement of data into and out of Sterling Connect:Enterprise® mailboxes
  • Sterling File Gateway Arrived Files, Routes, and Deliveries

The conditions under which SLCs generate events are determined by the SLCs you have defined and enabled.

However, actions (such as generating an alert or sending an email) are performed when rules are triggered. Rules are triggered by events that IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor generates either for external reasons (data is collected from managed servers) or for internal reasons (an SLC triggers).
