If you are integrated with PATROL, the dynamic enrichment PATROL message translation policy enables you to substitute existing PATROL messages with messages that are meaningful to your enterprise. 

For example, you can use the PATROL message translation policy to change this message: 

NT_CPU.CPU_0.CPUprcrUserTimePercent parameter CPUCputil triggered on 90 <= 97 <= 100

to the following, more comprehensible message:

CPU Utilization is at 97%


A sample dynamic enrichment service contact policy data source file, TextTranslation.csv, is provided in the installationDirectory\admin\etc\samples directory. The TextTranslation.csv file includes translations for many common messages that are useful in your enterprise. If you are integrated with PATROL, BMC recommends that you take advantage of the data that is already included in this sample file. For information about using the TextTranslation.csv file, see Using the sample PATROL messaging text translation dynamic enrichment source file.
