Situations for ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications

If the specified condition occurs or exists, the situation is true, and an alert is issued.

If you define situations that use a counter or a range of numbers, always provide a threshold or use values in a positive range of numbers. For example, use a greater-than-or-equal-to-zero expression as shown in some of the following predefined situations. This practice prevents a situation from falsely tripping. The Tivoli Enterprise Management agent interprets undefined attribute values as negative numbers, and will erroneously fire situations.

For the following situations...

...the Application ID column is not supported and always displays -1 by default.
