Triggers and notifications

The event processing service uses rules (Boolean expressions) to examine each event it receives. If an event matches a rule, the service initiates the actions associated with the rule.

  • Triggers contain the rules used to examine events. The rules of a trigger can be simple or complex, and most event properties are available for examination.
  • Notifications associate triggers with an action. Notifications can send email messages to specific users, create SNMP traps, run arbitrary commands, or perform other actions.

A trigger may be associated with multiple notifications. A notification may include multiple triggers.
