Event monitoring tasks

You create and run an event monitoring task by specifying a filter and running a search to get information about event monitoring related objects.

The information retrieved when running event tasks is stored in the HCL Workload Automation databases, therefore, to run event tasks you must be connected to a HCL Workload Automation engine and must be authorized in the HCL Workload Automation security file to access those objects in the database.

You can create event monitoring tasks to query for:
Event rule definitions
The template that defines an event rule consists of:
  • One or more events, defined with its properties.
  • The relationship between the specified events (they can be randomly grouped or listed in chronological order).
  • The actions that must be performed when all the event conditions are satisfied.
Event rules
The instance of a rule definition in the plan.
Triggered action
The actual occurrence of an action defined in the event rule and triggered when the event conditions have been satisfied.
Operator messages
The instance of the MessageLogger action specified in the event rule definition. It provides information about the result of an event rule instance on a repository stored in the HCL Workload Automation relational database.
