Indicator Mappings

This section introduces the features of the Indicator Mapping Rules manager, used to help you manage indicator mapping rules.

Indicators are used to represent the different types of events that can occur in the monitored environment, for example, System restart, Host state, Memory usage, or Print-queue length. Indicators can simply report that an event has occurred, for example, System restart:Occurred. They can also be used to represent the likely states for the defined events, for example, host state:down, memory usage:high, or print-queue length:full. Changes of state often indicate the existence of a problem.

Appropriate indicators must be created for each configuration item type, and the RTSM database model definition for configuration item types includes information about the specific indicator assignments. Assigning event type indicators to a specific configuration item type ensures that all instances of that configuration item type can be similarly monitored.

If you want to modify or manage configuration item types, use the CI Types Manager:

Administration > RTSM Administration > Modeling > CI Type Manager

Alternatively, click CI Type Manager.
