A group is a collection of monitored objects. For example, you can group nodes from the same location, group all your WAN interfaces, or group all devices owned by a certain department. Or, you can group all Windows servers, or SQL servers, or web servers. You can then create alerts and reports or restrict access for the group.

The example below shows how to create a NY IT Department group and add five nodes to it.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings, and in the Node & Group Management grouping, click Manage Groups.
  2. Click Add New Group.
  3. Provide the required information, and click Next.
