Performance Rules

Use this node to create or find performance rules. You can also sample or compare performance data.

Performance rules define how Microsoft® Operations Manager (MOM) processes performance counter data and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) numeric data. You can create the following types of performance rules:

Measuring rules
Cause MOM to collect numeric values from sources, such as WMI or Microsoft Windows NT® performance counters. MOM stores sampled numeric measures in the database. Measuring rules can also include a response.
Threshold rules
Specify that MOM generate an alert or execute a response when a WMI value or performance counter crosses a defined threshold.
