The correlation rules

A correlation rule is used to alert the admin when an event, or a series of events, occur in a specified time range.
In order to create a new simple rule you have to:


  • A mail server must be configured. Look this section to see how to configure a mail server.
  • At least one escalation chain must be defined. Look this section to see how to create an escalation chain.
  • Pattern must belong to specific class.

Using the SGBox web interface: SGBOX > LCE > Rules

Clink on New Rule

On the left section,tab Events, find the interested events and drag it in correct section on the right.

The next step is configure the Action. Search it on Actions tab and drag it on the correct section.
In our case we’ll find the escalation chain previuosly created in Alarm Chanin category.
It’s important also define a Timeout. Timeout is the maximum time ( in seconds ) between of the first and the last occurrence of the event. If there are only one event we can set timeout to “1”.
