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

Note:

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

  • Maintenance window settings

To configure Monitor Plug-in settings

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Home menu, click Monitoring and Alerting.

  2. In the left pane, click Monitoring and Alerting > Monitor > Agents/Plug-ins.

  3. Expand the folder for the operating system or application that the Monitor Plug-in runs on, and then expand the Configuration folder.

    For example: Windows > Configuration.

  4. Select the plug-in configuration item.
