Detecting a Missing Event

To detect a missing event, you must create a missing event rule. A missing event rule is a type of event processing rule that identifies an event that should occur at a specified time. If the event does not occur, it is considered "missing" and you can define an alert or responses to occur.

To create a missing event rule:

  1. Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the left pane.
  2. Expand Rules in the left pane.
  3. Expand Processing Rule Groups in the left pane.
  4. Expand the processing rule group to which you want to add the new missing event rule. For information about creating a processing rule group, see Creating a Processing Rule Group.
  5. Click Event Processing Rules in the left pane.
  6. Click Action on the menu bar.
  7. Click Detect Missing Event on the Action menu.
  8. Follow the instructions until you have completed creating the missing event rule. For more information about the fields on a window, click Help.
