Issue/Introduction

After creating an Event Profile with a Rule, when editing the rule, the Metric disappears and the rule does not trigger.

Cause

Trying to use aggregate to <AggregateToDevice>true</AggregateToDevice> on a Metric that does not support it.

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

If creating a rule via REST, unless using the Metric Families:

{http://im.ca.com/normalizer}NormalizedCPUInfo.
{http://im.ca.com/normalizer}NormalizedMemoryInfo

And the metric Utilization, then AggregateToDevice MUST be false

<AggregateToDevice>false</AggregateToDevice>

As only Memory->Utilization and CPU->Utiliation support device aggregation.
