Metric event symptoms are based on events communicated from a monitored system where the selected metric violates a threshold in a specified manner. The external system manages the threshold, not vRealize Operations Manager.

Metric event symptoms are based on conditions reported for selected metrics by an external monitored system, as compared to metric symptoms, which are based on thresholds that vRealize Operations Manager is actively monitoring.

The metric event thresholds, which determine whether the metric is above, below, equal to, or not equal to the threshold set on the monitored system, represent the type and subtype combination that is specified in the incoming metric event.

  • Above Threshold. Corresponds to type and subtype constants EVENT_CLASS_HT and EVENT_SUBCLASS_ABOVE defined in the vRealize Operations Manager API SDK.

  • Below Threshold. Corresponds to type and subtype constants EVENT_CLASS_HT and EVENT_SUBCLASS_BELOW defined in the vRealize Operations Manager API SDK.

  • Equal Threshold. Corresponds to type and subtype constants EVENT_CLASS_HT and EVENT_SUBCLASS_EQUAL defined in the vRealize Operations Manager API SDK.

  • Not Equal Threshold. Corresponds to type and subtype constants EVENT_CLASS_HT and EVENT_SUBCLASS_NOT_EQUAL defined in the vRealize Operations Manager API SDK.
