ServerView and WebView monitoring devices can represent a collection of several related monitoring targets (targets of internet infrastructure or web services monitoring) to be performed in sequence on a set schedule.
All monitoring targets within a device are included in the alerting and reporting communications, so that if any single target within a device errors, the alerts and reports will reflect the error. All targets inherit the monitoring settings from the device under which they were created.
To add a new target to an existed device, on the Device Manager page, on the device menu, select Add Target. Then set up the target settings in accordance with the device type.
Here are a few tips to manage targets within a device:
- The easiest way to set up a few closely related HTTP(S) monitoring targets is to record them using the EveryStep Scripting Tool.
- Generally, if you need to modify several it is recommended to clone an existing device and then make the necessary changes.
It is generally recommended that you only include one target per device. This allows you to set up and receive the most granular reports and alerts.
If you wish to create multiple targets with similar device settings, you can clone a device (from within Device Manager) or a target (from within a device wizard).
