CDM currently supports static monitoring, Dynamic Time over Threshold and time to Threshold monitoring but does not support Time over Threshold. It would be nice to be able to transfer some of my alarm rules from eHealth to UIM like alarm if during the last 30 minutes the CPU breaches 85% for any 10 minutes. This feature is talked about in the UIM manuals when the discussion comes to Time over Threshold but CDM does not support time over threshold, just Dynamic Time over Threshold, so on a system that's normally running 60% CPU, sometimes less, sometimes more, I wouldn't even know where to begin to set an alarm threshold that would alarm when my threshold and the baseline put together added up to 85%. I had opened a case with support thinking I was missing the support in CDM for Time over Threshold and the response was that it did not exist, but did exist in some other probes and that I should open an idea recommending this basic monitoring ability I've been using for years in eHealth be added as a NEW feature to UIM. Here's the response I got with list of probes where Time over Threshold without requiring knowing each baseline is available:
“Developer responded. CDM does not support static TOT.
Here is list of probes that support centralized static threshold:-
7. Clariion (2.00)
8. HyperV (3.00)
9. Dirscan (TM)
10. Ntevl (Key Change in CFG)
11. Logmon (TM)
12. Nperf (TM)
13. Ntservices (Key changes in CFG)
First 8 are PF probes which support this functionality by default. Ntevl and Ntservices can be enabled by changes key in CFG and rest need TM to enable this centralized static threshold.
