Each device you create in your account is monitored by an agent. That agent is running under the security credentials you provided during the installation of that agent. By default, we use the agent’s account to get access to the devices in your network.
However, you may want to use different credentials and use them for monitoring specific devices. By adding additional sets of credentials to an agent, those credentials become available for the devices of that agent.

Accurate monitoring of cluster health is therefore crucial in maintaining added value.
Uptrends Infra now provides powerful tools to keep track of your Windows Failover Cluster, allowing you to preemptively fix problems before your users notice anything is wrong.
