Configuring Tests for Jenkins

Follow the steps below to configure the test for the Jenkins component:

  1. Once the Jenkins component is added successfully, you will be again redirected to the Components page (see Figure 1). Using the options provided in the Components page, you can modify, unmanage or delete the newly added component. In addition, you can also configure the tests, set thresholds and maintenance policies, and change the IP address.

  2. To collect the performance metrics, you may need to manually configure the tests that are mapped to the Jenkins component. To configure the tests that need manual configuration, click on the icon in Figure 1. This will lead you to the Specific Test Configuration page where the unconfigured tests for the Jenkins component will be listed in the Unconfigured Tests list box.

  3. Now, click on the test name to configure it. To know how to configure the tests, refer to the Monitoring the Jenkins Server. To view the performance metrics, switch to the Monitor tab.
