Update Lists By Scan
The Update Lists by Scan page scans one or more machine IDs and returns lists of counter objects, counters, instances and services to select from when creating or editing a monitor set. Lists display in the Monitor > Monitor Lists page. Typically only a handful of machines of each operating system type need to be scanned to provide a set of comprehensive lists.
Update Lists by Scan also updates the list of event types available for monitoring using Monitoring > Alerts > Event Logs. You can see the list of event types available by displaying the Agent > Event Log Settings page.
Click Schedule to display the Scheduler window, which is used throughout the VSA to schedule a task. Schedule a task once or periodically. Each type of recurrence—Once, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly—displays additional options appropriate for that type of recurrence. Periodic scheduling includes setting start and end dates for the recurrence. Not all options are available for each task scheduled. Options can include:
