Configuration Steps Overview

Architecting a solution in Moogsoft Enterprise is in a way a "backward" design process. You need to ingest data to start the assessment and building strategies, but the resulting Situation design defines the further requirements for data ingestion.

Throughout the deployment process, you will be coming back to the ingestion step multiple times. When you determine your clustering strategy and design Situations you'd identify additional need to extract certain information from the source event payload.

For example, you may need to bundle alerts by the floor where the server is located, and that information is available as part of the server name. In that case, you'll be coming back to the ingestion step, and perform data parsing for the field.

Remember your solution design process is a cyclical, iterative one.
