Editing collector entry

See Edit collector entry for details
When editing a collector entry you can change the following settings:
  • Name of collector entry. It helps to have a full and properly description since this is the name that will appear in the alert message
  • Enable/Disable
  • Is this a folder collector. If it is then most other settings become unavailable.
  • Parent collector
  • The collector agent type
  • If this is a 'parent' collector then should 'child' collectors still be checked if the current collector return a state of 'Warning'
  • Repeat alert (only for Warning/Error state) even if the state hasn't changed
  • Don't generate an alert for specified number of minutes even if the state changed
  • Set up one or more service windows
  • Launch the custom configuration editor for the chosen type of collector
  • Although not recommended you can manually edit the collector's custom xml config
  • Imports custom xml config from another similar type of collector entry
