A Monitoring Profile is used to tell Iris how to poll a device.

We have created a video to show you how to add a new monitoring profile to Iris.

To add a new monitoring profile, click the + at the top of the screen.

The Create a new Monitoring Profile pop-up will be displayed.

Give the monitoring profile a name and a description so that you can easily search for it.

Select the relevant poll routine and then click on the arrow so that it will be enabled for this profile. You can select as many polling routines as required.

A list of available polling routines can be on here.

You can also click the link in the pop-up.

You can monitor the device primary IP and the “other side” of the connected interfaces via both ICMP and SNMP. Select what is relevant for you.

To add a TCP port, click Add another TCP port.

Add the port, the send and close string and then select the severity from the drop-down.

Edit a monitoring profile

You can edit an existing monitoring profile.

Select the profile that you would like to edit from the Monitoring Profiles page.

Click on the edit icon at the top of the screen or in the actions column and edit the fields as you would for setting up a new monitoring profile.

Create a monitoring profile from a copy

You can create a new monitoring profile from a copy. This would be useful when you would like most of the settings to stay the same, but you might need to change one or two things.

On the Monitoring Profiles page, select the profile that you would like to copy. Click on the copy icon in the actions column.

The Create new Monitoring Profile from copy pop-up will be displayed.

Change the name of the monitoring profile.

Edit the fields and tabs as required.

Click Save.
