Overrides adjust the configuration of System Center Essentials 2010 monitoring settings for monitors, attributes, object discoveries, and rules. When you create an override, you can apply it to a single managed object or to a group of managed objects.

The use of overrides is key to controlling the amount of data that is collected by Essentials 2010. When you create a monitor, rule, or attribute you target it at an object type, but often the available object types are broad in scope. You can then use groups and overrides together to narrow the focus of the monitor, rule, attribute, or object discovery. You can also override existing monitors, rules, attributes, or object discoveries that are from Management Packs. For more information about using object types, groups, and overrides in monitors and rules, see Targeting.
