Foglight Evolve 6.3.0 - User Guide

Attaching Targets to Templates

Alarm template targets are infrastructure objects monitored by Foglight. By default, every target is monitored by the factory template. To change the alarm rules monitoring a target or set of targets, you can attach those targets to a different alarm template.

Click Add Target. A list of available targets for that domain will be displayed.
Filter by type - Some domains offer the ability to filter targets by type. While the specific target types available differ by domain, the method to select a target type is the same. To filter by target type, click the Type drop-down and select the desired target type. Only targets of that type will be displayed.
Search - You may use the search function to filter targets to show only targets matching the search string. When searching for targets, Foglight will display matches for the search term in any field (Target, Current alarm template, Type, and Host).
Select the desired targets. Click Add Selected Target(s).

Removing Targets from a template

Targets can only be attached to one template. To delete a template or assign a target to a new template, you must first remove it from its current template.

Once a target is removed from a template, it will be monitored according to the rules of the domain default template. If the removed target has a parent object, and that parent object is assigned to a template, then the removed target will be monitored according to the parent object’s template.



Deleting a template

Before deleting a template, make sure that all assigned targets have been removed. See Removing Targets from a template.

Click Delete.


Monitoring Your Domains

In Foglight, domains are monitored components grouped together by a common technology. For example, operating systems are grouped together in the Infrastructure domain and application servers are part of the Custom Applications domain. Domains represent parts of your environment that you are interested in monitoring.

Each technology type is considered a subdomain. For example, each type of operating system in the Infrastructure domain is a subdomain.

Use the Domains dashboard to monitor your environment if you are a domain Administrator or simply prefer to think of your environment in terms of domain groups. This dashboard allows you to obtain a high-level view of the state of your monitored domains and investigate problems in a particular domain. It also shows you what domains you are not monitoring, but could be.
