You can define the basic details like the name, description, and how often to evaluate the health rule in Step 5 of the Create New Health Rule wizard.
- Enter a name for your health rule.
- If you want to start evaluating the health rule, ensure that you select the Enabled checkbox.
- Optionally, describe the health rule.
In the Wait Time After Violation field, enter the number of minutes to wait before publishing the violation event while the conditions found to violate a health rule continue.
The configured actions initiate only after this time elapses. See Health Rule Wait Time After Violation.
- Click Save. The health rule displays in the Health Rules list.
The evaluation of the health rule starts immediately. It takes a few minutes for a new health rule to associate with the entity or a group of entities before it appears on the list of health rules on the <entity> details page.
A health rule does not appear on the list of health rules on the <entity> details page if it is disabled.
