Event Rules Collection rules Filtering rules Missing event rules Consolidation rules Duplicate Alert Suppression Provider Response Knowledge NT event log Perfmon data WMI SNMP Log files Syslog Timed rule Alert Script Command line SNMP trap Pager Email Task Managed Code File Transfer Product Knowledge Links to Vendor Company Knowledge Links to Centralized Company knowledge Rules • Performance Rules • Measuring • Threshold • Alert Rules Rule Criteria Wheresource=DCOM and Event ID=1006

  31. Product Knowledge • Huge feature of Management Packs • Enable faster issue resolution • Facilitate correct targeting/escalationof issues Lower TCO! • Authored/Reviewed by product experts • Development team • Support (e.g. Microsoft PSS) • Content drawn from key support issues and resolutions

  32. ExchangeKnowledge Base • Knowledge is a key feature • Facilitates rapid issue resolution • Empowers front line operators • Less escalation • Faster resolution

  33. Company Knowledge Base • Use the company knowledge base to document workarounds • Company Knowledge Base bound to each rule; workarounds should be applicable to alert the rule will generate • Establish Company Knowledge Base format for consistency and ease of troubleshooting.
