How to Edit a MetricsView Collector 

  • Name: Defines the collector’s name, and is listed as part of the MetricsView custom collector task configuration.
  • MetricsView Node Alert Email: Is the address that will receive notices about issues with a collector.
  • Send first alert after: Defines the duration to wait while the system has not received incoming counters until the system will trigger an alert.
  • Continue Alerting Every: Determines how often alerts are sent when the collector is in an alert state.
  • Collector Type: Selecting MetricsView agent will use the MetricsView software that you download to your computer.  Selecting Customer Counter will require you to use the API to push your custom counter values to the system.
Each Collector has a unique Collector ID. This Collector ID is used to address counter data to the correct collector using the MetricsView API interface. A Collector ID Can be regenerated at the Edit Collector page ( “Downloads” –> “MetricsView” –> “Edit” button)

After you have created a new collector, you need to create a new MetricsView Collector Device on the Device manager page.
