Monitored Object Types

Every Monitored Object is assumed to represent an instance of a class of similar objects: a Monitored Object Type. It is used to describe a particular kind of monitored object, such as Computer Cabinet, ATS switch or Machine. Monitored object types allow objects to be categorized and standardized, defining a common set of attributes and metrics expected to be available for all objects of a given type.

A Monitoring Object Type definition includes:

  • Name (used in user interfaces to denote the type)

Adding a New Monitored Object Type

  • Icon (used in user interfaces to graphically represent objects of that type)

  • Attributes (a set of attributes an object is expected to have and expose in user interfaces)

  • Metrics (a set monitored parameters an object is expected to have)
