Set up a configuration template for a new server monitor added
Bulk associate configuration profiles to new server monitors added
The first time a server monitor is added, a default notification and threshold profile will be associated to the server. Also, the user's admin group will be chosen for sending alert notifications. If the user wants to make some changes to the template, login and go to Admin > Server Monitor > Configuration Template.
A user has a Site24x7 account with 10 servers being monitored. Each monitor has a specific configuration profile (threshold, notification, resource check profiles and user group) associated to it. The user now wants to add five more servers for monitoring. So, the user will have to add the servers and then associate configuration profiles separately for each monitor in the Edit monitor page.
But, this can be eased out by using the configuration template feature. For the new 5 monitors added, the user can create a configuration template by using the existing profiles or by creating completely new profiles. The new servers will automatically get associated to these profiles.
In addition, if 5 servers have an active MySQL application, then the user can also add its services/processes to their configuration template and mark them up for monitoring.
Note: During the next phase of adding new monitors, the configuration template created by the user will automatically be associated to the new servers added. The manual services/processes added by the user in the template will also get marked up for monitoring.
