Conditional Templates

Conditional Templates

Currently the Microsoft templates are designed around Microsoft's best-practices. The base Windows Server template monitors a basic Windows well enough but when you throw another application on top of it sometimes those thresholds are no longer correct for the given application. For example Microsoft has their own guidelines on what are considered normal conditions for many of the counters which are also part of the Windows Server template but when the Exchange template is applied it would be nice if the Windows Server template was present the threshold values would be overridden to handle workload specific task.

If I understand you correctly, you are hoping that something would be created by where multiple templates could be applied to a server, and you could select which would override same variables? I.e., if template A has an active process limit of 100, but tempalte B has an active process limit of 150, you would like to tell Orion to use template B for any 'conflicts'?

If that is the case, you have my vote.

Exactly

and you would be alerted when applying the template that there are potential conflicts...and asked to select which 'override' which ones.
