Analyzing Monitoring Sessions
Analyzing Monitoring Sessions

When looking at the results of a Network Session, it tells us what the performance is between 2 points in the network.

For example, let’s say you have a 1st Agent installed in your network and a 1st Public agent installed in Azure.

  • Select the First Agent
  • Select the Session
  • Look at the Graph

We are now looking at the Network Response Time Graph of your sessions.

You can easily see if you have a performance event between your two agents. But this won't tell you where the problem is located.

A quick and easy way to identify whether the problem is happening in your LAN, on the second Agent’s side, or between both, is to compare the results of multiple sessions.

We are done with that. Now we want to configure a second Monitoring Session towards our existing Agent:

  • Select the Monitoring Tab
  • Select the Gear icon in the upper right corner to edit existing Monitoring Templates
  • Select your Monitoring Template

Remember, you use Monitoring Templates to create Monitoring Sessions between agents in the first list and agents in the second list.

In this example, Your First Agent is in the first list and the Public Monitoring Agent is in the second list.

To configure a second monitoring session towards a second agent, just:

  • Select the 2nd list
  • And add the Agent that you want to point towards
  • Click Save
  • Go back to the Home Page
  • And refresh to see the changes

If you have any filters, applied you might need edit it to add the Agent you just created.

Apply, et voilà! We see the second session.
