Planning Workflow Policy Groups

Before you create your Workflow policies, you need to create workflow policy groups. Each Workflow Policy Agent is assigned one workflow policy group. If you are going to run only one Workflow Policy Monitor Agent and one Workflow Policy Action Agent, all your policies should be assigned to one policy group.

The reasons to use multiple Workflow Policy Agents are:

Policies with similar time intervals are generally grouped together. By creating groups of policies with similar time intervals, you can assign the workflow policy group a Workflow Policy Agent with a polling rate that matches the needs of the workflow policies—creating a more efficient use of your resources.

Creating workflow policy groups and using multiple Workflow Policy Agents are part of tuning your system to create the highest performance and can be done as you monitor your system's performance. For a complete discussion of workflow policy groups and how to use them to improve your system's performance, see Monitoring and Tuning Performance.
