Creating a monitor

ImportantAnomaly detection cannot be used in conjunction with other conditions. To use the anomaly condition, delete the other conditions or create a new monitor.

Before you can create a monitor, you need to create a source to monitor. See Adding HCP sources or Adding HCP S sources.

If you have multiple conditions, you can create a monitor to handle them collectively. When all of the set conditions are met (for example, AND conditions), the monitor is then triggered.

You can create a monitor using the Monitor App, REST API, or CLI.

For REST API, use command POST /monitors. For CLI, use command createMonitoredQuery.

To create a new monitor using the Monitor App:


  1. Open the Monitor App.

  2. Click Monitors.

  3. Click + on the Monitors tab.

    NoteThe Monitor + button only functions when you need to create a monitor from the Manage page or a sender from the Sender page.
  4. Select NEW MONITOR.

  5. Configure the settings for your monitor:

    NameA name for the monitor.
    DescriptionA description for the monitor.
    FrequencyThe frequency at which the conditions for the monitor are checked. The default is 5 minutes.

    When all conditions are met, the action will be performed. To add conditions, click ADD CONDITION.

    For more information on the available types of conditions, see Types of monitor conditions.

    ActionSelect an action to be performed when all criteria are met:
    • Monitor Only: Sends alerts in HCM when monitors are triggered.
    • Send E-Mail Message: Sends an email message when monitors are triggererd.
    • Send Syslog Message: Sends a syslog message when all monitors are triggered.
    • Send SNMP Trap Message: Sends an SNMP trap message when all monitors are triggered.
    MessageSettings to help specify when action messages are triggered and cleared.
