Using the group features involves performing one or more of the following tasks:

  1. Building and Configuring a Monitoring Group.

  2. (Optional) Saving a Group.

    You only need to perform this step if you want to use the group at a later time.

  3. Generating and Viewing Server Reports.

    The monitoring operations start immediately. Other tasks, such as running reports require additional steps.

  4. (Conditional) Accessing an Existing Group.
