Group monitored objects
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
A group is a collection of monitored objects, such as a group of nodes from the same location, or group of all nodes owned by a department.
You can include groups in other groups. For example, you can group all nodes managed by DevOps that are mission critical and then add that group to a more inclusive list of mission critical objects.
Nesting a group within another does not create a strict parent/child relationship. You can include any group as a member in any number of other groups.
