Associating Monitors to Monitor Groups


To associate a Monitor/Process/Service/Database to a Monitor Group, follow the steps given below:

  1. Click on the Monitor Group (from Home tab).
  2. Under Monitor Group Information, click Associate Monitors link.
  3. A list of discovered Monitors/Processes/Services/Databases that are available for associating and those that have already been associated with that Monitor Group is displayed.

    Note : The status of Monitor Group would remain unknown, until you associate at least one monitor to it.

  4. Select the check box of the corresponding monitor from Monitors not present in this Monitor Group list and click Add. You can also remove a monitor which has already been associated with the Monitor Group by selecting the check box of Monitor(s) under Monitors present in this Monitor Group and clicking Remove.

Note :

  • In order to add Processes, Services and Databases to Monitor Groups, go to Admin → Server Settings → Monitor Group Settings tab and enable appropriate monitor options (Process/Service/Database) prior to performing the action. On disabling these options, the Processes/Services/Databases associated previously can only be removed manually from the Monitor Group.
  • When a Process, Service or Database is down, the RCA for the Monitor Group will display the Process/Service/Database name along with the Server Display name.

Limitations :

  • Dashboards and Reports are currently not supported when Processes/Services/Databases are associated to Monitor Groups.
  • By default, Services do not have the Health attribute. It will not be displayed when viewed from Monitor Group or Web App Group.
