Configuring self-tuning thresholds

In the previous recipe, we introduced self-tuning thresholds and sought to understand how they function. In this recipe, we will further configure self-tuning thresholds to expand on what we've done thus far.

To recap, a self-tuning threshold monitor uses a learning process to determine the usual values for a specified performance counter object, and on the basis of the learned values, it sets the threshold. During the period of learning, SCOM establishes a baseline representing the regular and expected activity of the computer. After the learning period has elapsed, SCOM logs all subsequent activity for the computer and compares it with the baseline.

Self-tuning monitors can be either 2-state or 3-state monitors. ...
