Understand monitoring with both host and SNMP agents

MONITORED. This is the default state. It is set on the Host object when the host can be reached via SNMP.
UNMONITORED. It is set on the Host object when the target host cannot be reached via SNMP, but can be reached via ICMP.
UNAVAILABLE. It is set on the Host object when the target host cannot be reached via both SNMP and ICMP.
When the Host monitored status changes, the following alarms are triggered: Warning (for the UNMONITORED state) and Critical (for the UNAVAILABLE state).
