Monitoring Servers - Alerts - Tags


#1

How are y’all monitoring for things like servers or key workstations going offline? I had thought I could use Alerts for this, so I setup a tag, but I don’t seem to be able to filter on the “Events” by tag, which is where Machine Offline lives. I can filter on Alerts, but I don’t see it under Events.

Or, do y’all have a different/better mechanism?

Tags are not available for server event alerts.

So I made a filter for group names and machine names.
All Servers are in a subgroup called server which makes it easy.

Devices like POS Systems and other Pc’s which should be monitored for availability are filtered by the added (A) in the machine name.

That’s a good way to use the filters Thomas. Thanks.
