Smart monitor groups

hi there, a useful feature update, would be the ability to add smart monitor groups, based on wildcard names of servers, or other attributes. For example, we have a load of servers on a location in Manchester, our naming convention means all the server names start with MCR-*   and having them all automatically add to a Manchester monitor group would be really useful.

Correct. And to take it one step further, it would be even better if we could do this based on AWS tags :)

Hi Tom, 

   As I explained to Charlie, we are revamping monitor groups. As part of this, we will also take up automatically adding resources to monitor groups based on tags. We are giving a few templates to choose from for our initial release. We will incrementaly work on this and enhance them as we move along. Thanks for the suggestions. Keep it coming.

Re: Smart monitor groups

Thanks for the suggestion Charlie. We are revamping Monitor groups as we speak. We are bringing in monitor group templates. Adding monitors to Monitor Groups via a pattern is nice to have. We will work on this. BTW, are your servers on the cloud or are they on-prem or hybrid?

Hi Charlie1

>based on wildcard names of servers, or other attributes. 

Can you please suggest what other attributes would help you?

Any comments from the community would help us.

Thanks

Re: Re: Re: Re: Smart monitor groups

well, groups based on names is certainly the most important element for me at least - we name our servers based on location, so being to use those naming conventions for a group would certainly help...for example ukg-wey-dc is a server in the UK in Weybridge (wey), so being able to wildcard a group with names containing '*wey*' to a smart group - 'Weybridge', would be good. Then smart groups for Windows and Linux would also be useful. cheers.

Please make this an optional feature, not everybody wants/needs automatic groups.

framirez,

These are not automatic groups itself. How we envision it now is that these would be "Automatic Monitor Association Rules". These Rules would be associated to an existing Monitor Group (MG) as a setting and based on the rule definition we will automatically add these monitors to the appropriate MG. 

This would in turn help managing MGs better especially when our auto discovery finds new monitors or a non-GUI mode of adding new monitors is used.
