Service Monitor Settings


The Service Monitor Settings is a pre-loaded repository of all the generic services that might be present in a monitor (in this case, the monitor would be a server, whether virtual or non-virtual).

In order to monitor a service that may or may not be available in this list, you can use Rediscovery. The metrics related to that service are then available for monitoring.

This list of processes along with the list of services enables Motadata AIOps to discover the applications present in monitors at the time of rediscovery.

Go to Menu, Select Settings . After that, Go to Monitoring . Select Service Monitor Settings to display the list of all the processes that are pre-configured in the system.
