a. Definition An Error Definition is used for two purposes. Foremost it is a template for a Search String on log files. Perl regular expressions can be entered to search for log files. The error definition then can be associated to Application or Component level objects. Error definitions are also used for defining the template for an Error Event. When Analysis Rule is violated for example, it will use a Error Definition to decide what Event to generate.
i. Name User defined name for the Error Definition
ii. Search String Regular expression that will be applied against a log file on an application or Component level.
iii. Event Level This property will be entered into the Event.Level field if this error definition is fired in association to an analysis rule.
iv. Event Type This property will be entered into the Event.Type field if the this error definition is fired in association with an analysis rule.
v. Event Sub Type This property will be entered into the Event.Type field if the this error definition is fired in association with an analysis rule.
