Status filter rules provide a way to automatically process status messages when they arrive at a site (messages can be passed up from child sites). You can have an unlimited number of filter rules. Each one specifies certain message criteria, such as the component that generated the message, its severity, and its properties. Each message slips through the site's status message filter until it matches every criteria in a filter rule (the criteria are logically ANDed). To achieve logical OR behavior for a set of criteria, create multiple filter rules, each with a single criterion; messages then need only match one of the criteria.
When a status message matches a filter rule, the actions specified for that filter rule are performed, such as running a program, writing the message to the SMS site database, or replicating the message to the parent site.
Status filter rules are evaluated in the order in which they are listed, from top to bottom, in the details pane of Status Filter Rules. However, one of a status filter rule's actions can be to not process lower-priority status filter rules. In this case, when a status message matches that filter rule, no other filter rules are evaluated.
