Also, I followed quite a few links to find an answer but just could not get through.
links that seem helpful such as Customer Application Port Monitoring - How do I monitor a customer TCP/IP Port, not found by default within SAM ?
have another link within the page that lands no where and the hope of finding a help for this port monitoring diminishes.
Hope someone would please help me.
The tcp port monitor is pretty simple to set up, so I would wager that if you are having a hard time we should probably step back and begin with the basics of how to create templates
TCP Port monitor - This is the documentation on the port monitor component specifically
Sorry my friend but as I am sure you have read many times on this forum UDP isn't something that SAM can monitor because it doesn't have a measurable response.
You might try some of the following to work around this:
Or one of the many other Application Component Monitors to monitor the service at the other end of the UDP Port:
It should be fine since all of the ports listed in the requirements for are actually just plain tcp.
I recently migrated a fairly large sitescope environment into Solarwinds, ~14,000 monitors across ~2000 servers and in that case the hardest part was just exporting lists of the things we needed out of sitescope. Once we had some kind of to-do list assembled building templates in SAM to replace sitescope was mostly trivial.
