Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


By default, the eG Enterprise allows administrators to configure component groups using the eG administrative interface, and reports metrics pertaining to every group so created. Accordingly, by default, AutoDiscovery is set to No. If you want the components to be discovered and monitored automatically, then select the Yes option against AutoDiscovery. When this is done, the eG agent automatically discovers all the components on the target COM+ server, and reports one set of measures for every component available on the server.
