Dynamic Value based on Date, and baseline

Discussion created by jhelmbrecht on Nov 14, 2011



I have a senario where a customer would like to monitor a logfile every 15 minutes, but on every hour, it needs to compare to the same hour, the same weekday, but the week previous, and alarm based on a baseline of 10% of that previous week.



I know form within the SLM I can go to the QoS and create a monitor based off of the data, however I get a bit confused with Period Type (day) and Period. What is Period defined as, or what value should it have in it's field. 


Is Period


1 = Monday

2 = Tuesday.. .. ..


Thank you,
