Excluding a machine\hypervisors from the Monitor

In cases that you would like to exclude some machines\hypervisors\XD site etc from being monitored by the ControlUp Monitor, it's possible to exclude them.

Note: by excluding the objects from the monitor, alerting won't be applied to those machines and their data won't be presented in Insights.

To exclude an object from the monitor follow these steps:

  1. Select the object that you want to exclude, e.g. in the image, a VMware hypervisor. 
  2. Right-click it and select Properties. 
  3. In the 'Exclude from ControlUp Monitor' field. change it to 'Yes'.
  4. Click OK to apply the change. 

At this point, the monitor will disconnect from the object and you'll see it as 'Disconnected' in the 'Monitored Resources' tab in the monitor settings management window.

By default, the value is 'Inherit' on all object in the folder structure from the root folder and propagated down. If the root folder is excluded from the monitor, the whole environment will be excluded from the monitor (unless you have an object with 'No' applied).
