Monitor types and attributes

An application class is a logical grouping of individual applications, while an application group is a logical grouping of application instances. Within PATROL, you use application classes to define the attributes of all instances within an application class (global settings), or the attributes of a single application instance that has been customized (local settings).

BMC PATROL for Azure has monitor types that are segregated based on their components. 

Application classes group together various categories of data in BMC PATROL Knowledge Modules (KMs) and provide functionality in the form of parameters, menu commands, and InfoBoxes. This version of PATROL for Microsoft Azure includes the following application classes:

Terminology note

Monitor types in the TrueSight console and Central Monitoring Administration are known as application classes in the PATROL Consoles.

Attributes in Central Monitoring Administration are known as parameters in the PATROL consoles.

You can access Central Monitoring Administration from the TrueSight console or ProactiveNet.
