Universal Messaging Scheduling : Conditional Triggers
Conditional triggers execute tasks when specific conditions occur. Each defined trigger has a number of attributes that can be used as part of the trigger expression and evaluated to determine whether the tasks are executed. For basic information on the grammar for conditional triggers, please read the section on conditional triggers in the writing scripts help file (see Universal Messaging Scheduling : Writing Schedule Scripts). The conditional triggers are signified by using the 'when' keyword. The expression entered after the keyword represent the trigger object(s) and the values to be checked against.
This section will describe in detail the triggers that are available and how to use them within a trigger expression :
*Trigger Expressions
*Store Triggers
*Interface Triggers
*Memory Triggers
*Realm Triggers
*Cluster Triggers
*Counter Triggers
*Timer Triggers
*Config Triggers
To view examples of scheduling scripts, see Scheduler Examples.
Trigger Expressions
A trigger expression is constructed from the definition of the trigger object(s) to be evaluated and the values that will be used in the comparison. The trigger used in the expression can be either the actual trigger object, or the declared name of the trigger from the declarations section of the script (see Universal Messaging Scheduling : Writing Schedule Scripts). Multiple triggers can be used in the expression using conditional operators (AND | OR).
For example, the following expression can be used to evaluate when a Realm's Interface accept threads are exhausted 5 times. When this happens, the accept threads will be increased by 10. This schedule will continually monitor the state of the interface and self-manage the accept threads so the realm server is always able to accept connections from clients.
scheduler realmInterfaceSchedule {

declare Interface myNHP ("nhp0");
declare Counter myCounter("myExhaustedThreads");

when (myNHP.idleThreads == 0) {

Logger.report("NHP0 Interface has no idles Threads");
myCounter.inc();

}

when (myCounter >= 5) {

Logger.report("Increasing the accept thread count on NHP0");
myNHP.threads("+10");
myCounter.reset();

}

}
The above schedule will monitor the number of times the accept threads are exhausted and when the counter trigger hits 5 times, the number of threads will be increased by 10.
The next section will describe the available trigger objects and the available triggers on those objects that can be used within
