Parameters are run by the PATROL Agent; they periodically use data collection commands to obtain data on a system resource and then parse, process, and store that data on the computer that is running the PATROL Agent. Parameters can display data in various formats, such as numeric, text, stoplight, and Boolean. Parameter data can be accessed from a PATROL Console, PATROL Integration products, or an SNMP console. Parameters have thresholds and can trigger warnings and alarms. If the value returned by the parameter triggers a warning or an alarm, the PATROL Agent notifies the PATROL Console and runs any recovery actions associated with the parameter.
