    Article Summary

    9.0 Beta

    This article covers information relevant only to the version 9.0 beta release. Want to be the first to try our new features? Join the ControlUp Beta Program!

    You can use the actions for monitor management feature in our web UI to enhance visibility into the performance of your monitor clusters. It helps your troubleshooting capabilities by providing more detailed views of your monitor clusters, sites, and connected data sources in the web UI.

    You can also use web UI metrics to create triggers in the Real-Time Console. To display these metrics, open the SitesMonitors, or Connected Data Sources views from the Machines (Monitor) topology:

    ConnectDataSource

    Note

    The new monitor metrics are not visible in the Real-Time Console, however they appear in the web UI for 9.0.

    To open the monitor management menu:

    1. In the Machines (Monitor) topology, right-click a machine, or select multiple machines as needed.

    2. Select Monitor management and click the action you want to implement on the monitor(s).

    You can run the following actions on monitors in the web UI:

    • Start monitor

    • Stop monitor

    • Restart monitor

    • Set monitor to maintenance

    • Set monitor capacity

    • Set public DNS name

    You can use the following metrics as trigger conditions in the Real-Time Console:
