Groups and dependencies help you organize how data about your network is presented in the Orion Web Console and can improve or simplify alerts.

You can manage Orion objects such as nodes, volumes, applications, interfaces, and even other groups as groups. By using groups, you can logically organize monitored objects, and use the groups as the basis of alerts. For example, you can group nodes from the same location and create alerts and reports about the status of the group.

Dependencies between objects allow you to better represent the status of objects on your network.

Without dependencies, all monitored objects on an unresponsive monitored node report as down. By establishing dependencies, the child objects are displayed as Unreachable instead of down. This prevents false object down alerts.
