In Ops Center, you can create custom monitoring policies to set different monitoring thresholds for different groups of assets. I got a question about how to implement this:
"I'm trying to create a custom monitoring policy that'll be used for all global zones. So I copied the default one, tweaked a threshold and clicked 'Set as Default Policy'. However, even after checking that option, all of my global zones are still using the old monitoring policy. How do I get them to use the new one?"
So, setting a monitoring policy as the default just means that it'll be used for any new assets of that type. So, in this case, new global zones would use your custom policy, but global zones that already have another policy won't automatically switch. To switch your existing global zones over to your new policy, you need to select them (either individually or in a group) and apply the new policy to them. There's an action to do this in the actions pane.
