Enabling IP Service Monitoring

You can choose to monitor:
  • Individual services
  • Service classes

When monitoring a service class, you can choose not to monitor one or more individual services in the class. For example, the SMTP service class is monitored by default, but may not be a critical service on some devices. In this case, you can disable its monitoring on those devices.

To enable monitoring for a service class or service:

  1. In the tree view, select the service class or service to monitor.
  2. Make one or more selections:
    • Enable Monitoring (zMonitor) - By default, Inherit Value is selected for all services below the IPService node. When selected, the service class or service will inherit monitoring choices from its parent. If you want to individually enable monitoring choices, select the Set Local Value option, and then select a value.

    • Failure Event Severity (zFailSeverity) - By default, Inherit Value is selected for all services below the IPService node. When selected, the service class or service will inherit severity level choices from its parent. If you want to individually select severity levels, select the Set Local Value option, and then select a value.

  3. Click Save to save your choices.
