Describe what each service does

For each service, you have the option to create a brief, 80-character description to help easily identify the function of that service. For example, the description might include information about the URL or application being monitored, or notes regarding monitor settings or performance objectives.

These descriptions appear next to each service name on the Dashboard, as well as next to the service name at the top of the Services tab when the service is selected.

To add or edit the service description:

  1. Click on the name of the service you want to change the description for. You can do this either from the Dashboard or the Services window located on the left-hand side of the Services tab page.
  2. Click on the Settings sub-tab.
  3. Click on the Rename and Edit Description link from the Service Settings menu.
  4. Enter a description into the Edit Description field next to the service name, and then click on the Save Settings button to apply the changes.
