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.
