Event Groups

The TEC console provides a flexible environment to manage events from multiple products across the whole IT infrastructure.  To meet the varying operational requirements it can be configured to show just the events and views that operators require to manage all or part of the IT infrastructure.  From a storage perspective, it can be configured to just show events relating to the storage infrastructure.

Creating an Event Group Filter


To create an event group filter in the Tivoli Enterprise Console view, expand Event Console Configuration.


Click Event Groups. Currently defined event groups are displayed.

Click the event group for which you want to create a filter. A list of currently defined filters is displayed.

To display the pop-up menu, right-click the event group for which you want to create a filter.
From the pop-up menu, select Create Filter. The Create Event Group Filter dialog box is displayed.
Enter a name and description for the filter.
To specify filter criteria using the Constraint Editor, click the Add Constraint button. The Constraint Editor is displayed. As you complete each constraint for a filter, the SQL section of the Create Event Group Filter dialog box displays the updated WHERE clause. You can toggle the display of the SQL section by clicking the arrow button in the bottom right pane of the panel. You can create multiple constraints for the same filter while in the Constraint Editor.
To create additional constraints from the Create Event Group Filter dialog box, click the Add Constraint button to use the Constraint Editor again.
To specify filter criteria by manually entering WHERE clause syntax, click the Add SQL button. This activates the lower part of the scrolling list so you can enter WHERE clause syntax. Note:  Do not enter the WHERE keyword, as it is implied.
To test the correctness of the WHERE clause created from your filter criteria, click the Test SQL button.
To specify a new filter for the same event group, click the Add button and follow steps 6 through 10 again. The current filter will automatically be saved and fields will be cleared in the dialog box to begin specifying a new filter.
When complete, click OK to save your changes and close the dialog box.

TEC Event Groups and Views

TEC Event Groups enable only selected event classes to be displayed in a specific view, removing events which would otherwise make analysis of the received events harder.

Re: TEC console - New Event Group

When you created this new Event Group, did you add it to your console ?
Under configuration select your console and look at the Event Groups
Folder.  If the Event Group you created is not in there you will need to
add it.   I am not sure from reading your post if this is only missing from
the Priority view.    For the missing events you need to double check the
sql the filters events in this view.  Run the test sql and see if it finds
any events.  If not, then you may want to post the sql you are using to
filter events.
