Article ID: 198514


Updated On:


Mainframe Operational Intelligence



The instructions below along with the attached script will collect alert data from the customer's MOI appliance that can be used to analyze the volume of alerts being created along with the metrics that they are being created for. 

The analysis of the alert data will be performed by the MOI Engineering team once the collected alert data has been uploaded to a Support Case that has been opened for this activity.  


         Case Subject:

Request for collection of alert data for tuning and optimization of metric alerting on your MOI appliance

Case Description:

To help the MOI team recommend additional tuning and optimization for metric alerting on your MOI appliance,  the MOI Engineering team would like to gather some alert data from your MOI appliance.  This data will be used to analyze alert statistics and characteristics on your appliance, e.g volume of alerts, which metrics are generating most alerts, and which alerts (noise) might need to be suppressed or have thresholds applied based on your business needs and environment.   

If you are willing to provide such alert data,  please follow the instructions detailed in the Resolution section of the attached Knowledge doc. 

Thanks for their participation!
