Default monitoring configurations

Poly AV Studio Series Device application has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. Users can customize these default monitoring configurations as per their business use cases by cloning respective global templates and Global Device Management Policies. OpsRamp recommends doing this activity before installing the application to avoid noise alerts and data.

    OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of POLY-AV-STUDIO-SERIES. You can find those Device Management Policies at Setup -> Resources -> Device Management Policies -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: poly-av-studio-series Poly AV Studio Series - 1 (i.e, appName = poly-av-studio-series, nativeType = Poly AV Studio Series, version = 1

  2. Default Global Templates

    OpsRamp has a Global Template for each Native Type of POLY-AV-STUDIO-SERIES. You can find those templates at Setup -> Monitoring -> Templates -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

    Ex: poly-av-studio-series Poly AV Studio Series Template - 1 (i.e, appName = poly-av-studio-series, nativeType = Poly AV Studio Series, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors

    OpsRamp has a Global Monitor for each Native Type which has monitoring support. You can find those monitors at Setup -> Monitoring -> Monitors -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

Risks, Limitations & Assumptions

  • Application can handle Critical/Recovery failure notifications for below two cases when user enables App Failure Notifications in configuration:
    • Connectivity Exception
    • Authentication Exception
  • Application will not send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification until the already existed critical alert is recovered.
  • Macro replacement limitation (i.e, customisation for threshold breach alert subject, description).
  • Application cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts
  • Metrics can be used to monitor polycom studio series resources and can generate alerts based on the threshold values.
  • Component level thresholds can be configured on each resource level.
  • No support of showing activity log and applied time.
  • No support for the option to get Latest snapshot metric.
  • Applications do not have support for below metrics due to the reason that the rest API gives empty data in all the cases.
    • Jitter
    • Latency
    • Packet Loss
