Service Line

Reading Time: 2 minutes

To add a line between two hosts, go to Edit Map | Add Line | Service, then from the ”host_name” pull down menu select the name of the host you wish to use. Then from the “service_description” pull down menu select the name of the service. Now click on the Appearance tab, then on “line_type” and select “–%–><–%–” to present the usage in percent format.

Leave the other default options as is and click “Save”. Repeat the steps for the other end point hosts that you wish to add to your map.

NoteWatermark works well with “Service” because service object are often port interfaces or WAN, and this kind of element returns data values.
