Configure Dynamic Alarm Thresholds

Dynamic alarm thresholds can be set at the QoS metric level in probes that publish alarms for a QoS metric.

Dynamic alarm thresholds can be set at the QoS metric level in probes that publish alarms for a QoS metric.
In order to create dynamic alarm thresholds, you must have the baseline_engine probe version 2.0 installed on the robot and configured.
Follow these steps:
  1. In the probe GUI, select a node in the tree to view any associated monitors and QoS metrics.
  2. Select the monitor that you want to modify from the available list.
  3. Click the
    Publish Data
    box.
  4. Click the
    Compute Baseline
    box. The Dynamic Alarm Thresholds section is enabled.
  5. Change the drop-down in the Dynamic Alarm Thresholds section from
    None
    to
    Dynamic
    . The Dynamic Alarm Threshold section expands and more options become available.
  6. Choose an Algorithm to use:
    • Scalar
      - Each threshold is a specific value from the computed baseline.
    • Percent
      - Each threshold is a specific percentage of the computed baseline.
    • Standard Deviation
      - Each threshold is a measure of the variation from the computed baseline. A large standard deviation indicates that the data points are far from the computed baseline. A small standard deviation indicates that they are clustered closely around the computed baseline.
  7. Choose a direction for the threshold:
    • Increasing
      - An alarm occurs when the metric increases past the set threshold.
    • Decreasing
      - An alarm occurs when the metric falls below the set threshold.
  8. Set the threshold for each alarm state.
  9. Save your settings.
If you are using baseline_engine 2.1, you can also change the Subsystem ID using the
Subsystem (override) field
. This is only required if the Subsystem ID shown in the
Subsystem (default)
field is not correct for your configuration.
