Objective: Understand how stock models work and how to use them.
The action model
An action model is a predefined command that can be used in the configuration of a user service, a piece of equipment or a unitary service.
This command will only be executed when the status changes from confirmed OK to CRITICAL.
Its implementation is related to the resolution of problems which include for example the restart of a service (Windows or Linux) or the execution of a linux command.
This model catalogue will be enriched according to the needs of our customers.
