I want to make sure I understand how the status of a map object is related based on the status of child objects.
As I understand it, a "child" object is either one of the selected secondary metrics or a monitored node resource (interface, volume or application), Is that correct?
Therefore, if a node icon on a map has a yellow or red blinking LED on it, that means either a metric threshold has been exceeded, or one of the other node resources is down. One must drill down to discover which.
Am I correct in all of this?
Yes, that's right.
