When monitored metric data reaches a determined value or goes beyond an acceptable value range, rules are triggered. A triggered rule sends an alert and changes the severity state. A policy's task that is assigned a certain severity state is executed when a rule in the policy with a corresponding severity state is triggered.

For each severity type, you can add an associated task or tasks that are executed when a resource changes to each severity type. For example, if a rule with a critical severity level is triggered, then all the tasks you specify for the critical severity level are executed.
Tasks can be run from the Task Server or tasks can be run locally if a Monitor Plug-in is installed on the monitored computer. Agentless monitor policies are only capable of running Task Server tasks.
