A group is composed of settings and members. A setting includes one or more parameters. The matching criteria specified for the group and the group’s priority determine which managed elements are members of the group.

When a group is selected in the left panel of the Polling and Thresholds Console, four tabs are displayed:

  • Settings
  • Priorities
  • Matching Criteria
  • Description

Modifying the properties under each of these tabs changes the configuration of the group. When you finish editing the properties of a group, click the Apply button to save the changes and then select Reconfigure from the Group menu to make the configuration changes take effect.
