Optional configuration

Tuning thresholds for monitors and rules

Some monitors and rules have default thresholds that might need additional tuning to suit your environment. You should evaluate monitors and rules to determine whether the default thresholds are appropriate for your environment. If a default threshold is not appropriate for your environment, you should adjust the threshold by overriding it.

In the Citrix SCOM Management Pack for NetScaler Reference Guide, you can find details about the following items:

  • Discoveries
  • Monitors
  • Roll-up Monitors
  • Rules
  • Tasks
  • Scripts
  • Defaults with regard to enabled and disabled items
  • Adjustable parameters and their default values
