A group contains one or more settings, and a setting contains one or more parameters.

A setting is a collection of parameters common to a particular type of analysis. A component called a group contains zero or more settings and is related to managed elements in your network based on matching criteria.

Each member of a group is configured according to parameters defined in the group’s settings. In this way, different threshold values can be applied to different groups of devices.

This section describes the groups and settings. It also provides instructions for modifying the properties of a group and the parameters of a setting.

You can modify the groups or create groups to tailor the analysis of Application Connectivity Monitor to your particular managed domain.

The VMware Smart Assurance Application Connectivity Monitor User’s Guide provides complete information about the classes described in this chapter.
