Foglight provides a factory template which includes the available alarms for each domain. Each alarm is enabled or disabled based on the default cartridge configuration and uses (where appropriate) the threshold values described in the alarm.
The default configuration of the factory template is determined by global registry variables configured in the Rules Administration dashboard. If these values are modified for an alarm, they will be applied to the factory template as well as any template in which the alarm has not been changed. If an alarm is modified in a new or duplicated template, then any changes made in the Rules Administration dashboard to that alarm will be ignored for that template. If future Foglight versions include changes to the default rules, these changes will be automatically incorporated into the factory template when upgrading the Foglight Management Server or any cartridges. Any template in which the updated alarms have not been modified will also update the default alarm rules.
You must duplicate the factory template before modifying any alarm settings. Foglight provides two methods for duplicating the factory template.
A) When viewing the template, click the checkbox or On/Off toggle. A notice will be displayed informing you that you cannot edit the factory template, then click Duplicate.
B). Follow the procedure described in Knowledgebase article 333494 on Duplicating an Alarm Template.
The following video details how to duplicate the Factory Template.
