Configuring Tests for Nutanix Prism

After adding a Nutanix Prism for monitoring, try to sign out of the eG administrative interface. You will now be prompted to configure the tests depicted by Figure 1.

Figure 1 : List of unconfigured tests for a Nutanix Prism

Click on any test in Figure 1 to configure it. For the purpose of this example, let us choose the Nutanix Cluster Details test for configuration. Figure 2 will then appear. Click on each of the parameters in the figure below to know how to configure it.

To know how to configure this test, refer to the Monitoring Nutanix Prism topic.

Once the test is configured, click the Update button to save the changes. Configuring a single test automatically configures all other tests mapped to the managed Nutanix Prism. Therefore, proceed to sign out of the eG admin interface.

Once the configured tests run, they pull a variety of metrics from the Nutanix Prism and report the same to the eG manager. The eG manager then presents the metrics received in real-time in the eG monitoring console using a specialized monitoring model for the Nutanix Prism. Refer to the Monitoring Nutanix Prism topic for more details about this model.
