In this step of the Getting Started tutorial, you will see how to add a monitor to your ControlUp setup. Surely you are wondering – what is a monitor...? So we’ll tell you.
A monitor is a Windows service requiring no user interaction, which allows for continuous monitoring of your resources. It is recommended to run the ControlUp Real Time Console and the ControlUp Monitor on two separate servers.
