Apply Monitoring Template during Agent Installation
To ensure Check and Automated Task consistency when installing Agents, the Dashboard includes the option to setup a default Monitoring Template at the overall device level (applied to all new server or workstation installations) or for Clients and Sites (so different Clients or Sites Agent installs can have different templates).
By default, servers and workstations inherit their policy from the Site, which will in turn inherits the policy from the Client, which will in turn inherit policies set for all servers and workstations.
Once setup, any new devices that are installed against this entity will inherit these settings and automatically apply only those Checks and Tasks specified in the Monitoring Template.
Default Monitoring Templates are particularly useful when using the Site Installation Package and is also automatically selected when manually Installing the Agent (although the person installing the Agent can choose an alternate template).
Monitoring Templates are only applied to the Operating System they were created for (Windows or Mac) and Checks and Tasks are only added to devices capable of supporting them.
