Create a monitoring template—from a blank template

If you do not want to create a monitoring template based on an existing device, you can configure a blank template.

Monitoring Templates are added individually. You cannot create multiple Monitoring Templates at the same time.

  1. Log into the N-sight RMM Dashboard
  2. Go to Settings > Monitoring Templates > Manage Templates
  3. Click Add in the View Monitoring Templates dialog

  4. Choose the device type the template will apply to
    • Add Server Monitoring Template
    • Add Workstation Monitoring Template
    • The Add Monitoring Template dialog displays.

  5. Enter a Template Name

  6. Select the Operating System the template applies to (Windows, Mac or Linux)
  7. Select the Active box
  8. Configure the Check Frequency
    1. Select Enabled
    2. Select the 24x7 Frequency

      For five or 15-minute monitoring, the Agent synchronizes with the N-sight RMM Dashboard every 30 minutes to upload results, retrieve Automated Task and feature deployment settings.

      Every time a Check runs, a comparison is made with its previous result. If a change is detected, it is immediately reported to the N-sight RMM Dashboard(only results are uploaded and a full synchronization is not triggered). If no change is detected, the Check results are uploaded during the next synchronization upload cycle.

    3. Select the DSC Run Time. Daily Safety Checks run based on the local time of the computer the Agent is installed on.
    4. The Automated Task schedule is configured when adding or editing the Automated Task.

  9. Configure the Checks and Tasks
    1. Click Add and select Add 24x7 Check, Add DSC Check or Add Automated Task

    2. Configure the Check or Task as required

      As you configure or edit the template, you can add an item, or highlight a check or task in the list to edit or delete.

  10. Click OK to save

As the Exchange Store Check requires the datastore name, which is unique to each device, it is unavailable for selection in the monitoring template.
