What's the easiest way to create an alarm definition?
MainView Alarm Management includes the MAKEALARM wizard that provides a quick and easy interface for creating and editing alarm definitions. To create an alarm definition you go to a MainView product view that shows the data you want to monitor, edit the view to reflect your alarm definition conditions, and use the MAKEALARM command on the data item to start the MAKEALARM wizard.
You can find step-by-step instructions in our MainView Alarm Management User Guide starting on page 36: http://documents.bmc.com/supportu/documents/01/01/490101/490101.pdf
