The general practice is to monitor critical devices more frequently than non-critical ones.The recommended monitoring intervals for small and medium-sized networks (up to 1000 devices) are tabulated below.
|Device Category||Monitoring Interval (minutes)|
|Routers, Critical Servers||10|
|Switches, Hubs, and Printers||10 - 20|
|Critical Services like Exchange, Active Directory||10 - 20|
|Desktops and Workstations||We recommend turning off monitoring for unimportant desktops and workstations to reduce the amount of network traffic generated by OpManager. This is done by clearing selection for Desktop category in Settings> Configuration> Monitoring Intervals. Alternatively, you can also monitor them less frequently, say for every 30-60 minutes.|
If there are other critical workstations that you want to monitor, you can set up monitoring for them individually.
