22.3.01



Predict service outages proactively

BMC Helix AIOps performs ML-based service failure prediction. It uses the service health indicators and their threshold settings to forecast the service impact. As an operator, you can monitor the list of prediction events that might impact a service with its predicted severity and first impact occurrence. Timely prediction enables you to perform remediation actions to prevent future service outages.

For more information, see Monitoring service predictions.


Add extended attributes to CI Kinds (Node kinds)

Add extended attributes to a CI Kind when creating service blueprints. Though these attributes are not defined in the BMC Discovery taxonomy, they are used by some CIs in BMC Helix AIOps.

For more information, see Modeling service blueprints.



Enhancements in the Services and service details page

Health behavior

The summary text shows the highest health score % degradation and the graph shows the moving trend for the entire predefined period.

Severity pattern

The summary text shows the daily occurrence time of Critical or Major severity, and the corresponding graph shows the severity occurrence pattern highlighted for the predefined period.


Configure and view service health indicators

Define health indicators, add metrics, and configure alarm generation conditions while creating or editing service models. View the impact from the Health Indicators tab.

For more information, see Building service models.


Filter services using associated labels
