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).

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. PATROL for Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines includes the following application classes:
