Event and component folders

Event and component folders enable you to organize cells and collectors to make event displays meaningful for operators. For example, you might create an event folder for collectors that gather database warning events and allow only operators that are database administrators access to that event folder.

Events and components can be grouped in the following ways:

Event folders

An event folder is a grouping of collectors that shows the relationship of events or abnormalities through the hierarchy of the navigation tree. Administrators define event folders and associate them with one or more collectors. Each level of the collector is shown as a node under the event folder. An event list is associated with the lowest level nodes of an event folder. The parent level of an event folder represents all the events or abnormalities associated with the collectors.

Event collectors

Event collectors gather events for display in an event list. They provide operators with meaningful groups of events or abnormalities and show relationship through the hierarchy of the nodes in the navigation tree. To access the event list for a collector, operators click the collector node in the navigation tree.

Event collectors are dynamic or static. Nodes for dynamic collectors appear or disappear from the navigation tree based on whether events that meet the collectors' criteria are present or not. Nodes for static collectors remain in the navigation tree whether events are present or not.

Component folders

A component folder is a grouping of groups, services, or devices from several event lists (collectors) that shows the relationship of groups, services, or devices through the hierarchy of the navigation tree. Administrators define component folders and associate them with one or more groups, services, or devices. Each level of the component folder is shown as a node under the parent component folder. An event list is associated with the lowest level nodes of a component folder. The parent level of a component folder represents all the events associated with the groups, services, or devices.
