The monitoring profile is where you'll associate a ruleset with the assets that you want to monitor. It's also where you set up notifications so that the appropriate individuals and teams are notified of new alerts.
Go to Configuration > Monitoring Profiles and click New Profile. Follow the wizard to tell us which hosts you want to monitor, what you want to be alerted on (you'll select a ruleset) and which users should be notified (you'll select distribution groups). Learn more
You can disable a profile if you don't want alerts to be created from it. Choose Disable from the Quick Actions menu. To make the profile active again, simply choose Enable from the Quick Actions menu.
I created a new profile and it appears disabled. How come?
Your profile will be disabled if you did not assign any distribution groups. Edit the profile and select at least one distribution group to make it active again. The distribution group determines which users can see the alerts created from the profile.
The search area above the list allows you to search for monitoring profiles by the title, the name of the ruleset assigned to the profile or the notification frequency setting. Click to select specific search criteria or use the search field to set up a search query.
