Veritas Operations Manager 6.1: Managing threshold settings

Level 3

Using the Management Server console, you can set threshold values on an object such as a host to receive alert notifications for a specific performance metrics.
Veritas Operations Manager collects historical performance data for certain objects at a predefined interval. If any of these collected values violate the threshold value, a Risk or Fault is raised depending on the threshold definition. 

The following table lists the objects and the metrics on which you can set the threshold value. It also lists the evaluation intervals for the objects.

On a UNIX/Linux host, the performance statistics for disk and volume are collected every one minute. Last five samples are considered for threshold evaluation and if any of these violate the threshold value, an alert is raised.
