opEvents provides the Event Action Policy as a flexible mechanism for reacting to events. This document briefly describes how to configure the service, the policy language and the currently supported actions.


Action Policy Language

The action policy is configured in conf/EventActions.nmis, primarily in the section named policy. The policy consists of any number of nested if-this-then-that clauses, which specify the  conditions an event must conform to and what actions to take in case of a match. Further configuration sections specific to particular actions can be present in the same file.
