A question about MONITOR plugin

#1 Post by FrA » Fri Dec 16, 2005 4:33 am

Hi to everyone,
I've tried the monitor plugin and I've a question:
Is it only possible to monitor if one host is down (when I point the cursor upon my green host I can see only the ICMP echo reply status) or even if a host's service is down (for exemple if in my host I've configured more services I can monitor the status of all my services on this host)?

There's an alternative way in cacti (I'm asking without any plugins) to see this?

Thanx a lot guys!

You can monitor as many hosts as you want, you just have to check the box in the device configuration.

The monitor is only for monitoring host down status, if you want to monitor whether services on these host go up and down, there is the threshold plugin for that.
