    Agents send metrics to the Monitoring Server Examples: CPU usage, Disk usage, memory usage

    Operators define threshold values for metrics by specifying conditions

    Operators define situations that contain one or more conditions to test When all conditions are met, the situation causes and alert Management agents come with pre-defined situations that can be

    modified or extended

    Tivoli Monitoring correlates situations across multiple domains and systems

    Define Situations that Indicate Abnormal Operations

    Allows operator intervention and decision-making

    Use the Workflow Editor to create and manage automated response policies

    If system memory is paging at a high rateA process

    is using too much memory!

    send message to the administrator

    if message fails

    give operator a choice to have TEP
