Private locations

The table has the following columns:

Column Description
InSite Location Name Specifies the location name that is displayed in AlertSite dashboards and reports.
Status Specifies whether the location is active, that is, runs the monitors. Private locations can be disabled temporarily, for example, for maintenance.
Notify Error Specifies whether monitor errors detected at this location will trigger alerts. It can be changed at any time.
Last Monitoring Test Specifies the date and time of the latest monitor run performed at this location. If the location has active monitors, but this value lags behind significantly, it may indicate a problem with the location. E.g., there might be connectivity problems, or the location may need a restart.
Software Version Specifies the location’s software version number. Versions 1.7 and later are virtual machines (Private Node Server), 1.6.3 and earlier are physical appliances (InSite).
Monitors Used Specifies the total number of monitors configured to use this location. This includes both enabled and disabled monitors.
