Business Process Event Monitor
Monitors and Reports on Your Process Chains Using Graph Data Points
About the Business Process Event Monitor

The Business Process Event Monitor uses graph data points to monitor your process chains. It can alert based on the number of graph data points as well as the data that these points represent. This tutorial will show you how to configure your own Business Process Event Monitor's settings to match your monitoring needs.

Getting Started

To begin, add the units you've chosen to monitor. For example, in a traditional three-tier process you might have a "Web Front End", "Business Logic Tier", and "Storage Tier".

Unit Chooser

Business Process Event Monitor Settings

Using the device chooser, select a device that the resulting events and data points will be associated with. This can be a real device that is part of your monitoring configuration, or a virtual device like "Business Process 1" which only exists to group the results generated by this event monitor. Associating the result with a device lets you use those results in dashboards, reports, and other parts of the interface.

Device Group Chooser

Choose a level of alert that will be triggered if one or more graph data points are not found.

Alert Settings

The next option will alert you if the graph data points are older than a specified time span. You can enter an age that will trigger each level of alert.

Data Point Age Settings

The option to "Alert if the total calculated percentage is less than a specified threshold" lets you specify a percentage that will trigger each level of alert. Enter a percentage that will trigger the info, warning, error, and critical alert levels.

Cumulative Percentage Settings

The final two options allow you to include certain data and place it before or after the event text. You can choose to include a table of graph data points, a table of the result data, or both. Optionally, you can also color-code the table of result data to indicate different statuses.
