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.
Applications Manager 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 web application group, refer this link.
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]
How To Demos: Have a look at our demo on creating Monitor Group in our website.
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 resources. With Sub-Groups, you can capture advanced dependencies in your infrastructure. You can group clustered databases or servers and create complex groups. For eg., A huge banking application Monitor Group may contain 100 monitors (application servers, systems, databases, URLs, etc.,). All the database monitors can be grouped under a Sub-Group for effective monitoring.
To create a sub group, follow the steps given below:
Note: You can create up to six levels of sub-groups in a Monitor Group, by default.
