Auto-start List

Ping Monitor is a program used to monitor connectivity to remote hosts, so the monitoring activity management is one of the main functionality parts. To make it more comfortable to start bulk monitoring we have introduced automation settings available on the Automation preference page. You can either configure to restore the previous monitoring activity for hosts on the next server startup, or start monitoring only for those hosts that are included in the auto-start list, or leave the monitoring process inactive for all hosts. In case you have chosen the second option, you should configure the auto-start list, by including and excluding specific hosts.

Include

Include

The Include button from the Auto-Start Ribbon group on the Hosts contextual page from the Hosts Tools category should be used to add the selected hosts to the auto-start list.

Exclude

Exclude

The Exclude button from the Auto-Start Ribbon group on the Hosts contextual page from the Hosts Tools category should be used to remove the selected hosts to the auto-start list.

When a host is created it is automatically added to the auto-start list. You can then use the Include and Exclude button from the Auto-Start Ribbon group on the Hosts contextual page from the Hosts Tools category to include hosts to and exclude hosts from this list. These items are also available in the Hosts view toolbars and pop-up menus. To check if the host is currently included to the quick launch, just review if the On Startup column of the Hosts view has the Activate value.
