First Run mode

After you first install ipMonitor for the first time, the configuration program automatically runs in First Run mode. This mode runs only once to help you get up and running as soon as possible. The program automatically provides default parameters and requires you to configure an ipMonitor administrator account.

During the initial configuration process, you can set up the following default monitors to begin testing your system resources:

  • CPU usage monitor
  • Memory usage monitor
  • Drive space monitor

A monitor is a unit of information (such as CPU usage) that is collected from a machine. Depending on your ipMonitor license, you can configure up to 2500 monitors in the application. You can set up one or more monitors for each machine in your network.

The First Run mode also creates a default group, alert, and email action, and associates them with the new monitors.

See Add ipMonitor administrator accounts for details about creating an administrator account.
