This topic describes how to enable monitoring for instances/VMs related to a cloud account from the Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Settings page. You can also manage instances/VMs displayed on the Cloud Summary page; see Manage Cloud Instances/VMs.

Monitored instances/VMs do not count against SAM and integrated VMAN licenses unless they are managed as Orion nodes. See Manage a cloud instance or VM as an Orion Platform node.

  1. Access the Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Settings page.
  2. Click Manage Cloud Accounts.
  3. On the Manage Cloud Accounts page, select the check box next to the account for which you are choosing instances/VMs to monitor.
  4. Click Choose Instances/VMs.

  5. Select the check box next to an instance/VM to toggle Auto Monitoring on or off.

    If an instance/VM is not available, an icon File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/Core_-_Cloud/Cloud_Import/0010-Monitor_cloud_instances_and_VMs/0060-Manage_your_cloud_infrastructure/0020-Configure_cloud_monitoring_settings/0030-Manage_cloud_accounts/0020-Choose_cloud_instances_and_VMs_to_monitor/cloud-instance-notavailable_16x14.png displays next to it. This may occur if an instance/VM is stopped or a connection issue occurred.

  6. Scroll down and click Save.
