You can assign monitors to multiple groups. For example, you could assign a PING monitor that traverses a network switch as a dependency to many groups that depend on the availability of the switch.

For example, if the state of a single monitor within a group changes to Warn, the state of the entire group becomes Warn. If the monitor state progresses to Down, the state of the entire group becomes Down.
