VNC service

SolarWinds N-central can monitor the availability of a VNC server, and determines the up or down status of the VNC service. The VNC service does not use the Warning state.

SolarWinds N-central averages the availability of the VNC service over the scan interval. It compares the availability of the VNC service to the threshold to determine the status.
