I am rearranging our ipMonitor hierarchy, and currently have it set up as follows.
1. A hierarchy of devices sorted by location. Dependencies on pings and local routers
2. A Hierarchy of smart groups with no dependencies that group the monitors by other conditions
ipMonitor has to alert several groups of people so alerting is arranged as follows
1. The systems alert monitors everything in the hierarchy of devices
2. Groups 1-4 alerts watch their designated groups in the alert hierarchy
My question is, if a router goes down, systems will only be alerted about that, and not everything lower down the tree, but will Groups 1-4 receive an alert for everything? The monitors have dependencies, but not in the specific group that the alerts reference.
Please let me know if the problem is not clear, and thanks in advance for youer help :)
