Monitoring Groups

A Monitoring Group is a list of one or more servers or IP addresses

For all Argent products, Monitoring Groups define the servers and devices to be processed – Monitoring Groups are shared by all Argent products

The same Monitoring Group can be used by any number of Relators in any number of Argent products

By not having to specify servers and devices in the actual Relators, and by sharing Monitoring Groups, only the Monitoring Groups need change when a new production server comes online (or an existing server is replaced), rather than having to change hundreds of occurrences of the same server name or device address

There is no limit to the ways Monitoring Groups can be created

You can have a Monitoring Group consisting of the servers and devices in the Accounting Department, and another Monitoring Group of those in the Engineering Department

These same servers and devices can be in different Monitoring Groups may list servers by application – all production Exchange servers in one Monitoring Group, all production Oracle servers in another Monitoring Group, all test Linux machines in another Monitoring Group, all network printers in another Monitoring Group
