Configuring Monitor Plug-in settings

The Monitor Plug-in settings are configured and applied to Monitor Plug-ins with configuration policies. When a configuration policy is turned on, the settings apply to all the Monitor Plug-ins that are contained in the groups that the policy targets.

See About the Monitor Plug-in.

See Creating new Monitor Plug-in settings.

See Installing the Monitor Plug-in


If more than one configuration policy targets a Monitor Plug-in, the plug-in's settings match the configuration policy that was saved the most recently.

Within a configuration policy, you can configure the following Monitor Plug-in settings:

  • Application detection

  • Metric preferences

  • Data collection settings

  • Monitor Plug-in Heartbeat settings

  • SNMP settings

  • SQL settings

  • Real-time Performance Viewer parameters
