Managing a site includes monitoring devices, applications, security, and other tasks. You're only as good as the available information that you can manage and act on. You need to know what's happening at your sites at all times.
Monitors sample a status and compare it to an alert rule. When the status matches the threshold defined in the rule, Barracuda Managed Workplace generates an alert and the configured action takes place. For example, Barracuda Managed Workplace can:
- send an email
- create a trouble ticket
- escalate, self-heal
- run a script
A monitoring policy is a collection of monitors and associated alert rules for a specific application, hardware device or operating system. Monitoring policies can include both automatic application rules, which define the criteria a device must match to be monitored, and manually applied devices and groups.
