Register a collection

Collections are groups of counters that monitor systems in a target environment. To collect system metrics, you need to register a collection in ArcGIS Monitor Administrator. If you have multiple environments you want to monitor, you'll need to create a collection for each environment. Complete these steps to register a collection:

  1. Start Monitor Administrator.

    The Connections view appears.

  2. Click Open on the ArcGIS Monitor Server application connection for which you want to register a collection.

    The collection pane appears.

  3. Click the File menu and click Register.
  4. Type a name for the collection in the Collection Name text box.
  5. Type the email address of the ArcGIS Monitor administrator in the Email text box.
  6. Click Add.

    The new collection appears in the tree view.

Now that you’ve created a collection, continue with Add a monitor service.
