BEM question- Blackout by parameter

Rob Raphael

First - not sure if this is the right fourm for this....

I am looking to see if BEM has the ability to blackout at the parameter level. Currently I do this by vi the blackout.cfg file in PEM. With the "BEM" movement, I need to be able to do this. Does anyone have a "blackout by parameter" strategy?

    Hello,

    Yes it is possible to perform Blackout on parameter if you use
    the dynamic policy. You could use a file like Blackout.cfg using %mc_parameter% slot in order to perform blackout on specific parameters.

    You have samples already provided with BEM. Of course you have to enable these policies in order to use it.

    Hope that Helps.

    Emmanuel.

    It works a little different than PEM but it is possible.
    (You have to define your timeframes first.)

    The sample BEM Blackout file is in this directory:
    C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Impact\console\etc\samples
