Custom Monitoring Fields


Suppose you need to add a custom monitoring field with a fixed value against the monitors, you can create a field of your own to do so. This field can be used for grouping or tagging purposes to filter out certain monitors as per your requirement.

For example, There are multiple monitors located at a particular location. You can add a custom field at the monitor level to mention the location of monitors. You can create a custom field with a fixed value and assign the field to all the monitors discovered from that particular location. The field is then available to view against these monitors on the Monitor Screen as well as the Device/Agent/Cloud/Service Monitor Settings Screen.

Go to Menu, Select Settings . After that, go to Monitoring . Select Custom Monitoring Field. The screen to manage the custom monitoring fields is now displayed.
