When deploying probe packages in IM (configuration files and templates: .cfg and .cfx) as described in KB34027 the TOT (time over threshold) rules dare not deployed to the target robots. Why?
Release : 9.x, 20.x
Component : UIM - INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGER
ToT settings are not kept in the probe cfg files. Instead, it is kept on the primary server in this file: nimsoft/probes/service/nas/alarm_enrichment/alarm_enrichment.cfg
So, this prevents us from using a configuration superpackage to update a group of devices.
It is only possible to individually set the ToT thresholds via the probe utility, but ban only be done one device at a time.
The only supported way to set alarms that include ToT for group devices is through:
- the MCS https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/ca-unified-infrastructure-management-probes/GA/how-to-articles/configuring-alarm-thresholds-in-mcs.html
and Operator Console. https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/unified-infrastructure-management/9-0-2/configuring-and-viewing-monitoring-data/operator-console-functions/manage-alarms-with-centralized-alarm-policies.html
It has never been an option in IM.
