To specify particular events to collect, you must create a
collection rule. A collection rule is a type of event
processing rule that identifies events with specified criteria to
be collected from specified providers.
Collection rules do not provide responses or generate alerts.
They simply identify events to collect. You can create other
processing rules to generate alerts or provide responses for the
events specified in collection rules.
To create an event collection rule:
Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the
Expand Rules in the left pane.
Expand Processing Rule Groups in the left pane.
Expand the processing rule group to which you want to add the
new collection rule. For information about creating a processing

Processing Rule Group.
Click Event Processing Rules in the left pane.
Click Action on the menu bar.

Follow the instructions until you have completed creating the
