Applying and editing thresholds at the template level affect all applications that are based on that template. Thresholds can be used based on calculated baseline data or you can create your own thresholds based on your needs.

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

  1. On the Web Console, click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manage Templates.
  2. Select a template and click Edit from the toolbar.
  3. Select a component monitor, click [+] to expand the monitor details.
  4. Select Use thresholds calculated from baseline data:


    Once this box is checked, the Warning and Critical fields automatically populate with the macro, ${USE_BASELINE}. This macro can be used when configuring alerts.
  5. Select the options for sustained thresholds, and then click Submit.


You can edit multiple component monitors and their thresholds if the monitors are the same type and thresholds are available. Multi Edit only become available when the selected component monitors are the same type, as shown. After you click Multi Edit, select Statistic Threshold > Use thresholds calculated from baseline data. Edit thresholds, click Save > Submit.


By default, I/O thresholds of Windows Service Monitors are not set.
