Foglight for Active Directory rules

Foglight for Active Directory includes a number of predefined rules to monitor all critical components of Active Directory® on a continuous basis to ensure that the directory is functioning properly.

Foglight allows you to modify these predefined rules or create your own rules to ensure you are monitoring statistics and alerting on conditions specific to your Active Directory environment.

Foglight for Active Directory provides an additional dashboard that can be used to manage the cartridge’s rules. That is, Foglight for Active Directory rules can be managed using one of the following dashboards:

Rules dashboard (Dashboards > Administration > Rules >All)
