Impact Analysis in UCMDB

I am trying to use the Impact Analysis Manager in UCMDB version 9.02. I have tried to find research (other than help menus) to help me better understand it's use. My purpose would be to use it to determine the impact of a submitted RFC on the system. I can't say I fully understand the way the Impact Analysis Manager works so I am seeking documents that explain it better. I have read the HP Universal CMDB for Windows operating systems version 9.01 document but it does not answer my main question.

 

My main question is: Can I run the Impact Analysis on a node or view using ONLY the impact rules I have created?

In other words when I run the tool, I choose the Trigger Severity and in the Correlation Rules section I can choose "all impacted rules" or "Only impacted rules located in a specific bundle". Is there a way to create a bundle that only uses the Impact rules I have created in the Impact Analysis Manager?

Re: Impact Analysis in UCMDB

I guess what I am saying is I would like some better understanding of Impact Analysis.

 

For example, I would like to see what would happen to dependent servers and their applications (also 1 hop out) when I take one down. I created a TQL (see attached) in Impact Analysis Manager and added impact rules to the Computer CI and also the DependentComputer CI. I want to indicate in the rules that a server directly dependent on the main one (the one I will take down) would have a higher impact than one that is indirectly dependent on the main server. I am not sure how to do this.

 

I thought in training (a few years ago) I saw the instructor indicate different severity levels, such as 50% impact would be a major and 25% impact a minor and so on. I have attached the rules I created also.  They may be wrong, I was just guessing since I don't find anything in the help menus and for the life of me, I can't find any documentation indicating how to do this.
