Traffic Groups - Device and Interface Groups

This section is common to all the editions of IT360 - Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition (Probes only) and MSP Edition (Probes only).

Device Group

ManageEngine IT360 lets you create device groups, which consist of a set of routers. A device group can contain any number of routers, and a router can belong to any number of device groups.

The Device Group Management option lets you create, manage, and delete device groups. Initially, when no device groups have been created, you will see a message that lets you start creating device groups.
