Setup Device Monitoring

How to setup device monitoring

This page allows administrators to configure a new device for monitoring. If Unibox is used
within a wireless network, then administrators can configure the devices in Unibox for
monitoring. Unibox will check the status of all devices periodically and will send email alerts if
any of them are down. UniBox can monitor devices both on LAN and WAN side. LAN side
devices are monitored using their MAC address while the WAN side require the IP addresses.

set the default monitoring settings before adding the devices. This will ease the job of
