Device Dependencies

There are two ways to set dependencies in WhatsUp Gold:

Device Dependencies Dialog

The Device Dependencies dialog is the same for both up and down dependencies with the exception that one sets up dependencies and the other sets down dependencies. Up dependencies is signified with a upward green arrow icon, while down dependencies is signified with a downward red arrow.

The statement at the bottom of the dialog is automatically generated for you to assist you in understanding the type of dependency you are creating.

An example statement would read:

"ATL145 is dependent on QATEST-WIN2K's FTP and HTP and Ping active monitors being up. (ATL145 is "behind" QATEST-WIN2K.)"
