Foglight uses rules to apply business logic to data collected from your environment. When pre-defined conditions are met, an alarm will be triggered. Using alarm templates, you can determine which alarms to apply to which targets, and configure threshold values as needed.
Foglight domains are components grouped together by a common technology. This can be a database type (such as DB2) or a general category (such as Infrastructure). Each domain has a default set of rules appropriate for the underlying technologies of that domain. For more information, refer to .
Targets are infrastructure objects assigned to a template for monitoring. Targets can be assigned to only one template. Targets not assigned to a template are monitored by the default alarm rules in the factory template.
Foglight includes a factory template, which is used as the default template unless a different default is configured. You are able to select a default template for each domain, which will be applied to objects in that domain without the need to add them as targets to the template.
