    Hi APM Experts,


    I am working with CA APM 10.7. My question is regarding CLW commands. 

    Can't we increase the threshold of  all alerts usnig CLW command ? 

    I am using this command to deativate the alerts "/usr/bin/java -Duser=admin -Dpassword= -Dhost=localhost -Dport=5001 -jar CLWorkstation.jar deactivate alerts matching E.* in management modules matching Expense_QA"


    So , the customer wants similar command by which we can make changes to the alerts threshold's with in a seconds.


    Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.

    If they regularly want to change between two or three known threshold values, they could make multiple copies of the alert and activate/deactivate the alerts as required.

    But, if the alert is used in a dashboard as well, there is only really a one-to-one relationship there.

    So either there needs to be a whole copy of the management module.

    Or it could theoretically be created as a summary alert so that the alert status should only report the value of the active alert.

    But there have been issues in summary alerts in 10.7 where one or more of the included alerts are inactive, the alert status does not work, this was fixed in SP1.

    It can be possible but might be very lengthy process. Create a script which can extract a .jar file into ManaementModule.xml file. After that your script will update your desired threshold values and then again make a jar file.

    Thanks for this Junaid.  Using CLW by itself, there is no way to increase the threshold of an alert.  Your solution is the correct way, use CLW wrapped in a script to extract the jar file, modify and then repack the jar file.
