To create an ADManager Plus Monitor, follow the steps given below: 

  1. Specify the Display Name of the ADManager Plus monitor.
  2. Enter the HostName or IP Address of the host where ADManager Plus is running.
  3. Enter the JMX Port where ADManager Plus is running. By default, it will be 8080.
  4. Check the Monitor Database checkbox to select the type of database.
  5. Enter the DBHostname and the Database name.
  6. Check the is SSL enabled option if SSL is enabled.
  7. Specify the Database Port of ADManager Plus.
  8. Enter the username and password for accessing the database.
  9. Enter the polling interval time in minutes.
  10. Choose the Monitor Group from the combo box with which you want to associate ADManager Plus Monitor (optional). You can choose multiple groups to associate your monitor.
  11. Click Add Monitor(s). This discovers ADManager Plus from the network and starts monitoring.

Monitored Parameters
