It is on this Services panel that you can create and manage any of the out-of-the-box service monitors, as well as search for additional plugin monitors found at at The Grid. You can also configure other Uptime Infrastructure Monitor objects that allow you to manage monitoring-related activities:

  • bundle a stack of service monitors into a Service Group that can be collectively assigned to Elements
  • configure different types of Alert Profiles and Action Profiles that run when service monitors raise alerts 
  • indicate hierarchies using Topological Dependencies, to prevent a service monitor on a dependent Element from sending alerts when a parent Element's service monitor is already doing so 
  • avoid false positives by defining Maintenance Profiles to indicate when service monitors shouldn't watch Elements for status changes, and Monitoring Periods for when they should

...

The Config panel is where administrators configure the Monitoring Station. For example, in the previous module, you created Global Credentials Settings on this panel to define common configurations to communicate with the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent, your WMI implementation, and SNMP network devices. Similarly, you would define how the Monitoring Station connects other platforms and applications, such as the mail server that sends alerts to users; or whether Uptime Infrastructure Monitor uses your organization's LDAP server to authenticate users; or whether another Uptime Infrastructure Monitor instance that offloads report generation tasks exists. It is also here that you manage the Monitoring Station's internal configuration (for example, which types of collected data are archived, or the number of Java threads are allocated to service monitors).

Users

Image Removed

User access in Uptime Infrastructure Monitor results from the properties of three overlapping constructs: user profiles, user roles, and user groups. It's on this Users panel that you can manage all of these to ensure all Uptime Infrastructure Monitor users are able to see the appropriate parts of the monitored infrastructure, and perform the appropriate types of actions.

In the fourth modules, you work a bit with users and user groups.

Dashboards are meant to be customized. Additional gadgets are always added to The Grid.
