Creating New Monitor Group


This section explains how you can create a new Monitor Group. A monitor Group is particularly useful for grouping the resources of a location say the resources available in sales office or for grouping the resources used by a business application.


SQLDBManager Plus provides two types of monitor groups - Monitor Group and Web Application Group. The steps to create a Monitor group are explained below. To create a Database Group, refer this link.


To create a new Monitor Group, follow the steps given below:

  1. Click New Monitor Group.

  2. Provide a Name for the Monitor Group. This is mandatory and only alphanumeric characters, dashes (-), underscores (_), periods (.), and spaces ( ) are allowed.

  3. Provide any Description, if required.

  4. Under Advanced Options, Select the Owner from the list of users created. Refer User Administration topic for more information on the different roles of users.



    Operator if associated as an owner will have Read Only Access to that particular Monitor Group alone.
    Admin user is a super user and will be able to see all Monitor Groups.

    Manager if associated will be able to view this Monitor Group in Manager Console. Using this option, Restricted Monitor Groups alone can be shown in Manager Console. [By default, if the Manager is not explicitly associated to a Monitor Group, the Manager will be able to access all the Monitor Groups in the Manager Console]

  5. Select the location for associating the monitor group to World Map Business View. Else by clicking on 'Add Location', google map opens up. Here you can add and select custom locations.

  6. Click Finish to create the Monitor Group and to add Monitors later.

Creating a Sub-Group within a Monitor Group

By using this option, you can create a Monitor Sub-Group within a Monitor Group (a Monitor Group within a Monitor Group). Sub-Groups help better organization of your SQL resources. With Sub-Groups, you can capture advanced dependencies in your infrastructure. You can group clustered databases in a single Sub-Group.

To create Sub-Group


Currently, by default, six levels of Sub-Groups can be created for a Monitor Group.
