85.3 Monitor Web Console

The Monitor web console is also platform-independent and can be viewed at the following URL:


To create the Monitor web console display, your web server communicates with the Monitor Application (a component of your web server), which then communicates with the Monitor Agent to obtain agent status information. This enables the Monitor web console to be available outside your firewall, while the Monitor Agent console can be used only inside your firewall.

The Monitor web console is divided into the Agent Groups window on the left and the Agent Status window on the right. Using the Agents Groups window, you can create and manage agent groups.

The Monitor web console does not include some features that are available at the Windows Monitor Agent server console and the Monitor Agent console. These are summarized in Comparing the Monitor Consoles.
