Introduction to GroundWork Monitor EE 8.7.0
What's new in this version?
In GroundWork 8.7.0, further improvements have been made to the way GroundWork Messenger contacts and templates are configured. This should aid customers in setting up users with multiple contact addresses, and methods which use REST APIs to target these contact details.
Much work has been done to both improve stability and modernize our integration with Grafana.
What do I need to know to be able to use GroundWork Monitor 8.7.0?
We are providing a Quick Start document for those of you new to monitoring with GroundWork Monitor 8.7.0. There’s a lot of community knowledge that you can use when setting up GroundWork Monitor, especially if you ever used a prior version. There are also some Docker Commands administrators will want to get familiar with in order to make the most of their GroundWork Monitor 8.7.0 installations, especially if you are new to working with containers.
Of course, if you need more than you can absorb from the documentation on your own, we offer training and support. Just ask us about our training courses.
What to do, and What not to do...
Please see Best Practices. In principle, monitoring is an essential service for any IT department. We can't know what your needs are (unless you tell us), but we have seen a lot of deployments and are happy to share our knowledge.
