Create a Monitoring Session

GigaVUE‑FM automatically collects inventory data on all target instances available in your cloud environment. You can design your monitoring session to include or exclude the instances that you want to monitor. You can also choose to monitor egress, ingress, or all traffic. You can filter the traffic and, use a suite of GigaSMART applications as well.

When a new target instance is added to your cloud environment and it matches a traffic rule confgured in the monitoring session, GigaVUE‑FM automatically detects and adds the instance to your monitoring session. Similarly, when an instance is removed, it updates the monitoring sessions.

You can create multiple monitoring sessions per monitoring domain.

  1. In GigaVUE‑FM, on the left navigation pane, select Traffic > Virtual > Orchestrated Flows and select your cloud platform. The Monitoring Sessions page appears.
