The Threshold Rules page allows you to add thresholds for conditions and determine if scripts need to be run or SNMP traps sent.

To add or edit a Threshold Rule, navigate to Settings > Threshold Rules > Add New Rule > Threshold Rule.


The following descriptions detail the available options.


  • Rule Name: The name you would like to give this rule.
  • Section: The section of the devices that you would like to monitor. This can be done across the Enterprise or by system type. The Section defines the scope of resources to which the rule applies.
  • Category: The category you would like to monitor. The Category defines the metrics that can be applied to the Section.
  • Choose Instances: If applicable, the Choose Instances allows you to choose specific instances on which you can run the rule. Click on File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM_Profiler/Threshold_rules/03000079.png to add an instance to the selected list.
  • Condition: The Condition defines the threshold you want to set. First select the field to monitor, then the condition, and then the value to evaluate the condition against.
  • Duration: The duration that the condition must be true for the action to be taken. This is the length of time the condition must be met before the threshold is triggered.
  • Choose Action: Allows you to assign an action to be taken if the threshold condition and duration occur.
  • Run Client Script: Enter the path and file name of your script. (client-side based).
  • Run Server Script: Choose from the scripts uploaded to the SRM Profiler server. (server-side based).
  • Send Trap: Send out SNMP trap.

After the rule is created, it must be added to the SRM Profiler Policies.
