Re: Terminology question
I am searching for a term and wondered if someone here has had a similar occurence.
A short background - this term is for a parameter in a printer application that "reaches out and touches"
other printers to ensure that all warnings on individual printers within the intranet are given in a timely manner to the administrator, depending on when the administrator wants to be told of certain errors. We are searching for a term that describes a group of parameters where
each parameter must be configured as to importance, but can be grouped in different groups
of printers and parameters.
My developer is calling these a "filter", which we both feel is wrong, but my
idea of "sieve" is slightly incorrect too, as each error is of the same weight inside the parameters (although you can assign more importance to individual errors) and no particular error at the beginning has more weight than any other.
If I'm understanding what you are describing correctly,
I've seen these called "alarm thresholds": admins can
indicate that when a parameter reaches a particular
level or setting, a notification is sent.
