* *PART II: Employing Monitoring Methods* - \- Part II focuses on various monitoring methods including SSH, agent monitoring with GDMA, Windows monitoring with WMI, and network graphing using Cacti. Users will learn about monitoring with SNMP Traps and how to add trap forwarding from any SNMP enabled device to your GroundWork Monitor system as well as produce alarms and notifications from traps as they arrive. We take a look at SNMP Polling and how to set up monitoring for status and availability and apply one of many available service profiles. Users are guided with the set up syslog message monitoring so that specific messages from IT devices are captured, and in the GroundWork Cloud Hub module take a look at deployment, the management of monitoring profiles for virtual environments, and the metrics gathered.
