This topic describes the overall process of configuring a WMI monitor, assigning it to a device, and getting feedback from the monitor.
To start, it may be simpler to create one monitor for each WMI object that you want to monitor. Whether you set up one monitor or many has a bearing on how the information is reported in WhatsUp Gold logs and by actions. For example, a single monitor to check errors on logon, named LogonErrors, is reported in logs with this name. If LogonErrors is reported down, you know it's a specific problem.
Note: The monitor will be reported down if any of the objects that you selected to monitor are down.
