With remote monitoring you can monitor the state of an object from a remote location by configuring a remote check.

You can configure remote monitoring using HTTP, ICMP TCP methods.

When you configure a remote HTTP, ICMP or TCP check, it is created as a child object of the tested object that you are monitoring and of the monitoring agent.

If the object that you select to remotely monitor does not already have an alert configured, one is created automatically in the format Remote check type failed on a object type. If the object has an existing alert, that is used.
