Default Monitoring Configurations

NEC Displays application has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. You can customize these default monitoring configurations as per your business use cases by cloning respective Global Templates, and Global Device Management Policies. OpsRamp recommends doing this activity before installing the application to avoid noise alerts and data.

  1. Default Global Device Management Policies

    OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of NEC Displays. You can find those Device Management Policies at Setup > Resources > Device Management Policies, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: nec-displays NEC Displays - 1 (i.e, appName = nec-displays, nativeType = NEC Displays, version = 1)

  2. Default Global Templates

    OpsRamp has a Global Template for each Native Type of NEC Display. You can find those templates at Setup > Monitoring > Templates, search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

    Ex: nec-displays NEC Displays Template - 1 (i.e, appName = nec-displays, nativeType = NEC Displays, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors

    OpsRamp has a Global Monitors for each Native Type which has monitoring support. You can find those monitors at Setup > Monitoring > Monitors, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

    {monitorKey appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: NEC Displays Monitor nec-displays NEC Displays 1 (i.e, monitorKey = NEC Displays Monitor, appName = nec-displays, nativeType = NEC Displays, version = 1)
