When you add an application to an environment, you select from a list of predefined templates or create your own custom template, to group the objects to monitor in your application.

Where You Find Add Application

In the menu, click Environment, then Groups and Applications > Applications in the left pane. On the Applications tab, click the plus sign.

Add Applications Options

Each predefined template provides you with a list of suggested tiers designed to help you group related objects that perform a specific task in your application. After you select an option, you can alter the selection and number of tiers on the Application Management page.
