Object Type: Service Check
Service Check Category: OmniCenter Checks
Description: Monitors whether or not the host is being polled for performance data. If OmniCenter is unable to collect performance data from the host (such as from failed credentials), this check will enter a CRITICAL state. This check entering a CRITICAL state does not indicate that a host is down—merely that OmniCenter cannot access it to collect statistics. If your authentication credentials for this host change, be sure to update them in your device template or the host’s authentication administration page.
(Required) This field specifies a name for this check. The name entered must be unique among service check names on the host it is added to (the name may be used again only on a different host). It is used to identify this specific check from among other service checks added to the same host.
