    • Occurrences: Specify the number of event occurrences that produce a match on the conditional expression to trigger the rule. You can enter the number of occurrences or use the arrow to scroll the value up or down. You need to enter a number between 1 and 100.
    • Length: Specify the length of the timespan used to identify a match for multiple occurrences. Enter the number and choose a value of seconds, minutes, or hours.

      This duration identifies the amount of time that transpires from the beginning to the end of the occurrence. If the number of occurrences is not met within this period, the rule is not a match.

      Specify multiple occurances to match for the rule

      In this example, the rule applies when the configured conditions happen five times every three hours.

    These two options function together to specify the number of occurrences within a time period that will produce a match for the rule.
