This section provides information about tasks that you must perform after installation and before you can start using the product. Here you can find information about monitoring profiles and the associated monitor types available in the BMC PATROL for Application Management 2.6. This section also provides instructions on configuring the monitor types by using the BMC ProactiveNet Central Monitoring Administration Console.


Perform the configuration through the Central Monitoring Administration console connected to BMC ProactiveNet or BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management.

For more information see one of the following depending on your product version:

  • BMC ProactiveNet 9.5 online documentation Open link
  • BMC ProactiveNet 9.6 online documentation Open link
  • BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management 9.6 online documentation Open link
  • BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management 10.0 online documentation Open link

The following table lists the monitoring profiles that you can configure by using Central Monitoring Administration. If a monitor type in the BMC PATROL for Application Management 2.6 contains "No" in the "Can the monitoring profile be manually configured?" column, it means that such monitor type is automatically configured by Central Monitoring Administration.

Monitor types are referred to as application classes in the BMC PATROL environment. Multiple application classes grouped together comprise a monitoring profile.
