Assign templates to nodes manually to create application monitors

This topic describes how to manually assign templates to nodes, but you can also assign them automatically with the Application Discovery Wizard.

To begin monitoring with a template, you need to assign it to a node. At that point, the template is considered to be an "application monitor" (sometimes called an "application") that collects and reports on polling data to the node according to the application monitor's configuration.

The quickest way to assign a template to a node is through the Add New Application Monitors Wizard. You can also assign them on the Manage Application Monitor Templates page.

To assign a template using the Add New Application Monitors Wizard:

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manually Assign Application Monitors.
  2. Select the Application Monitor template to apply, and then click Next.
  3. Select the server nodes where you want to apply the template, and then click Next.
  4. Select existing credentials or create new credentials, then click Assign Application Monitors.

To assign a template through the Manage Application Monitor Templates page:

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manage Templates.
  2. Browse and select the template you want to assign.
  3. Click Assign to Node, select the nodes where you're assigning the template, and then click Next.
  4. Select existing credentials or create new credentials, then click Assign Application Monitors.
  5. Review the information for the application monitor you created, and then click Done.

To remove application monitors from nodes:

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manage Templates.
  2. Select a template and click Edit to display all currently assigned application monitors based on the template.
  3. Select the applications monitors you want to remove and click Delete.
