Create/Edit Monitor Item

Create/Edit Monitor Item

On this page you can create new monitor items to use on the 'Monitor' page. In addition they will show up in the list on the 'Monitor Config' page. 

When you create/edit a monitor item, there are some general configurations needed, as well as some that are specifically aimed at the monitor item type that is being configured.

The general monitor item configuration includes giving it a name, associating it with a data owner (not mandatory), choosing a type(monitor item type), assigning a registered service to handle the monitoring, specifying a polling interval forhow often the monitor logic shall be invoked, defining warning and error levels and specifying service windows where the monitoring should be on pause.

Note that the greyed out 'Delete' and 'Show group' buttons are only used when editing a monitor item and are therefore not relevant when creating a monitor item.

Suppress Errors(s) to status / Suppress amount of times

Being able to setup a threshold of how many times an error must occur in a row before an actual error status is show. (It should go to "Warning" first). Also choose which Status it should set if error count threshold is not reached (sometimes we might want Warning to be able to see something is wrong, sometimes we might just want Success).

If we have had two errors, and the threshold is set to 5, and there comes one Ok status, the counter is reset to zero and status set.

Note that hours and minutes are seperated by a dot. In the 'Weekdays' field you can select the days of the week the monitor item should run in the specified time interval.
