A Network Monitoring Template is used to define and create the monitoring sessions between a specified list of agents. To create a Network Monitoring Template, go to the Monitoring page in the App and click on the settings icon located at the top right corner of the page. This will give you the list of templates if you have already created some. Click on the "Add" button at the top right corner of the Monitoring Templates window to create a new template.
When creating a new template, you must first give it a meaningful name to help you identify it later on. Then, you must define the lists of agents that will have monitoring sessions between them. For instance, if you had two agents, Agent-1 and Agent-2, and wanted to create a monitoring session between them, then you could add Agent-1 to the first list of agents and Agent-2 to the second list of agents. This would create the session between the two agents.
It is important to note that you can add more than one agent in each of the lists described above. This would create monitoring sessions between all the pairs of agents between the two lists. For example, if the first list contained Agent-1 and Agent-2 and the second list contained Agent-3 and Agent-4, then you would have four sessions created:
- Agent-1 <---> Agent-3
- Agent-1 <---> Agent-4
- Agent-2 <---> Agent-3
- Agent-2 <---> Agent-4
