Adding a data source to a monitoring template

  1. From the navigation menu, choose Advanced > Monitoring Templates.
  2. In the tree view, select the monitoring template.
  3. In the Data Sources area, click Add.
  4. In the Add Data Source dialog box, enter a name for the data source, select the type, and then click Submit.
  5. Double-click the new data source.
    An Edit Data Source dialog box appears, specific to the data source type. For example, the following figure shows the Edit Data Source dialog box for a COMMAND data source.
  6. Enter or select values to define the data source.
    For example, the COMMAND data source type, Use SSH must be enabled. Otherwise, the commands only run locally on the collector that is assigned to the device to which the monitoring template is bound. In the Command Template field, enter the command to run. Note that any script that you enter in this field is first run through TALES running. You might need to escape certain characters. For more information, see TALES expressions.
