QRadar: SAR Sentinel Threshold Values

Question & Answer


Can the default SAR Sentinel Threshold values be changed based on the hardware?


QRadar uses the System Activity Reporting (SAR) Linux tool for comparing the system load against the values that are specified under the Admin Tab > Global System Notifications. These values are based on percentages. Hence for any software installation of QRadar, irrespective of the hardware configuration, the default values would be fine. You do not need to change the values unless advised by any support engineer.
