Foglight for Active Directory rules Running diagnostic tests Managing Active Directory metrics


The selection made in the Monitor panel of the properties page defines the services that are to be monitored by the selected agent(s).

The services monitored by default are:

Unavailable WMI Classes

The Unavailable WMI Classes panel allows users to disable invalid WMI queries, caused by WMI classes unavailable for an environment issue.

Data Collection Scheduler

The selection made in the Data Collection Scheduler panel defines the data collection schedule to be used.

The following table lists the collectors being used by the cartridge and the default collection interval for each (as defined in the defaultSchedule).

The collections marked with an asterisk indicate collections with corresponding sections on the Active Directory Metrics Management dashboard. When using the defaultSchedule, you can use either this setting on the agent properties page or the Metrics Management dashboard to modify these connection intervals. For those collectors not marked with an asterisk or if you are using a user-defined data collection schedule, you must use this setting to manage the data collection intervals. For more information on the Active Directory Metrics Management dashboard, see Managing Active Directory metrics.
