To save the time and effort involved in manual service specification, eG Enterprise offers an easy-to-use auto-configure option in the form of a icon that is available next to the servicename text box.
To auto-configure the services to be monitored, do the following:
Click on the icon next to the servicename text area in the Windows Services test configuration page (see Figure 91).
The icon will appear only if the following conditions are fulfilled:
- The Windows Services test must be executed in an agent-based manner.
- In case the eG manager in question is part of a redundant manager setup, then the agent executing the test must be reporting metrics to the primary manager only.
- When the button is clicked, a services page will appear (see Figure 92).
Upon clicking the Get Service button in the windows services configuration page, a pop up window with a list of services that are running on the host will be displayed (see Figure 93).
The services that have already been configured for monitoring will not be listed in Figure 93.
- From the pop-up, select the services that require monitoring and click the Submit button.
Clicking the Submit button in the pop-up will automatically populate the Windows service name text box available in the windows services configuration page, with the name of the chosen service (see Figure 94).
You can add more services in the windows services configuration page by clicking on the Add button present at the right corner. To remove a specification that pre-exists, just click on the icon that corresponds to it. You can also manually edit the service name using the icon. When you click the icon, a window will popup, where you can edit name of the chosen service (see Figure 94).
