      Hi Vadivel,

      There is some maintenance activity scheduled for docs.bmc.com. Can you please check this page after a day or two? 

      You can expand the Monitor types and attributes page in the left navigation pane and check the monitor types. Hope this helps.

      Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

      Thanks,
