Monitoring a host

The easiest way to monitor a host is to assign it a template from a Monitoring Connector:

  1. To find out the name of the template for a specific Monitoring Connector, go to Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager. Search for the Monitoring Connector you want, and then click the "i" icon at the bottom left of the pack.


    The documentation for the Monitoring Connector opens: it will give you the exact name of the template for this Monitoring Connector.

  2. Create the host:

    • manually: in the Templates field, select the template for the Monitoring Connector you want.
    • using the autodiscovery module: the Monitoring Connector will be filled in automatically.
  3. Deploy the configuration. The host and its services are now monitored: they are displayed on the Resources status page.
