Importing monitor packs

Monitor packs include the necessary monitor policies, metrics, rules, and tasks for monitoring an operating system or application. Monitor packs also contain preconfigured monitor policies with preset thresholds and severities.

You must import monitor packs following the installation of Monitor Solution. Importing monitor packs lets you choose what functionality you want installed on your monitoring server, and when you want it to be installed. Importing a monitor pack is accomplished by scheduling a monitor pack import in the Import Monitor Pack page.

See Configuring the monitor server.

See About monitor packs.

You can also import monitor packs from the Monitoring and Alerting section of the First Time Setup portal. The First Time Setup portal is available on the Home menu, under Notification Server Management.
